Map reading and mud

Here's another article about children not getting out in nature enough. The Telegraph UK mentions a study done by the good people at The Hertfordshire University showing that children were open to the idea of rambling but it was their mothers that were not confident in the great outdoors.......

Well, as a mother, I will take note and make sure I don't "mollycoddle" my kids.... I promise.

  1. Hi Kay, Your blog is terrific. We are obviously much aligned. I write a blog called Slow Family Online. I also work for the Children & Nature Network. Do you know about them? Come check out their web forum,, if you haven't already. There's much about children's built environments, among other topics that would be of interest to you. I'd love to stay in touch.
