No Fear. Growing up in a risk averse society

Focusing on the crucial years of childhood between the ages of 5 and 11 - from the start of statutory schooling to the onset of adolescence. No Fear advocates a philisophy of resilience that will help counter risk aversion and strike a better balance between protecting children from genuine threats and giving them rich, challenging opportunities through which to learn and grow.

"Children in the past have been assumed to have capabilities that we now rarely think they have... So fixated we are on giving our children a long and happy childhood that we downplay their abilities and their resilience"
The Invention of Childhood H. Cunningham (London BBC Books 2006)
