How to Help Your Kids Survive Outdoor Sports



Outdoor and action sport culture is drifting down a path of ultra-high risk. Yes, safety gear is important. But, Dr. Robb Gaffney explores the parent/child relationship and how it could be the most effective safety tool for kids entering outdoor sports.

Dr. Robb Gaffney is a psychiatrist working in Tahoe City, CA who for the past 15 years has been has been sharing his passion for the outdoors with his two children. As an accomplished big mountain and backcountry skier, who has written a book on high level skiing and has been featured in over 10 ski films, Dr. Gaffney has a unique perspective on risk, sports, and what elements lead to good decisions in the outdoors. Driven by the increasing morbidity and mortality in action sports, he founded the company, Sportgevity, and helped create the grass roots, Tahoe based movement, the Go Bigger Coalition. Dr. Gaffney believes that connecting children to the outdoors effectively and safely begins with the parent-child relationship.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
