Gever Tulley: 5 dangerous things you should let your kids do

I love this talk at Ted University, and Tulley's attitude about children. I completely agree, children should -- play with fire, own a pocket knife, throw a spear, deconstruct appliances, and drive a car. His easygoing style and sound reasoning is refreshing.

Gever Tulley is the founder of the bitchin' sounding Tinkering School.

Enjoy healthy ideas about kids,
