Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

This presentation describes parents' risk perceptions regarding children's engagement in everyday occupations and how these influence the decisions they make to offer children age-appropriate opportunities for risk taking. It offers a qualitative analysis of stories parents shared that illustrate specific instances when children's engagement in age-appropriate risk taking resulted in children developing specific abilities, experiencing positive emotions, and gaining life skills.
