Have you seen the Bring Back Wildhood campaign created by Go RVing Canada? If not, go directly to their website and enjoy this inspiring video! I strongly believe we've gotten to a point of micromanaging our kids lives so completely that we're robbing them of the lessons life has for them. We need balance back. Our kids deserve it.
Kids want their wildhoods back.
They want to play not have playdates.
Get dirty not sanitized.
They want you to trade your parenting books
for a fishing rod.
They want to wander.
Be left alone for more than five minutes.
They want to sleep in a bunk.
Stare at the stars past their bedtime.
They want to eat with their hands.
Eat from a stick.
Visit their neighbour without a chaperone.
They want to run, skip, and roam free.
Let’s give them what they are truly missing.
Let’s give them back their wildhoods.
