Want to know about one of the greatest free facilities for the development, entertainment and education of our children? Pop over here projectwildthing.com and watch their film.
I was worried it was just me harping on about getting the kids outside! But Project Wild Thing endorses everything I believe. Most particularly that our kids are only having half an education and half a life if they’re spending all their time either in school, inside, or in front of a virtual life.
Not only that but the way they are connected to the earth will change attitudes to the earth; that it is not just a resource centre there for the taking. We have made it too easy to disconnect from anything muddy, cold or inconvenient thereby disconnecting our understanding and care of the planet and our relation to it. We don’t just have relationships with each other you know!
So, enhance their education, give your kids their wildness back and go outside – even urban outdoors will do. You may also find that some of their indoor wildness is calmed. And spirits and health will soar and buzz.
Go on…..get all your coats on!
