Regarding American parents

Men’s Journal » Print » The Blind Man Who Taught Himself To See: "The first is Kish’s general ethos about how blind children should be raised. “Running into a pole is a drag, but never being allowed to run into a pole is a disaster,” he writes. “Pain is part of the price of freedom.”"

I look at playgrounds these days and am depressed by the risk aversion in the designs. Dealing with danger and pain are necessary for survival skills and toughness. I hope I let me eventual children get hurt so they learn.
