The kids and I discussed how to safely do this and I trusted them all to do it. Gever Tulley is very clear in his book – and at his school, The Tinkering School, that skills are taught and that kids are given particular priviledges as long as they don’t hurt themselves or others. If I had any doubt that any of the kids didn’t get what was expected, they would not have been up there.
It is was exciting and they sure looked super-cute way up high!
Dangerous? Definately, but the controlled type. They loved looking at these pictures.
