SMH Article 2014

February 2014: Sydney Morning Herald

"Children as young as two are hopping on BMX bikes, climbing rock walls and attempting skateboard manoeuvres in a quest for more adrenalin-pumping pastimes than kicking the footy or going for a swim.

3. List the pros and cons of children learning and enjoying a sport and an extreme sport.
