Richard Louv writes about the value of unstructured play in nature, in cultivating emotionally and physically healthy children. Over-parenting puts undue pressure on children to meet unreasonable and unproductive standards of achievement.
It is also worth investigating what may have prompted these safety / trust measures to be brought in. Are they in response to some bad experience or unfortunate event where things have gone wrong? Are they precautionary, to reassure participants that any risk is managed? Is there a legal requirement to have these kinds of measures in place? Do the arrangements differ from country to country (social attitudes and norms certainly do!)? Could this heavy emphasis on safety actually put people off ("maybe it's too risky, otherwise why would they have all these measures in place!")? Is this just Northern / Western paranoia?
