Gone are the days of playing with knives and spears and on to the days of IPods and gears. As a mom of three I believe if we want to change the world for our next generation we have to change the next generation. Kids don't know how to get dirty anymore. They are clean, techy, headphone wearing, internet surfing, game boy junkies. I never mean to generalize, there are kids out there that know how to catch a fish. It is my opinion that we have lost the foundation of survivalism in our kids. There is still such a thing as scouts and girl guides but it is not the same as it used to be. We need to shift the status quo and give our kids an opportunity to light fires, play with knives, cook food on a flame and so on. Here are a list of thing we should do with your kids. They are resilient little creatures so give them the opportunity to make mistakes and figure it out on there own (with guidance fo course).
How many of the above can you kids do? Do you have any stories that you would like to share about your kids and survivalist skills!
