Should parents let their kids take more risks?

If you've read the cover article from the Atlantic, titled, "“The Overprotected Kid", this is a nice interview of the author, Hanna Rosin, by PBS that provides more background and insight to the highly provoking article.

The video of the interview is below, and the original article can be found here.
