Teaching our children
I am going with two of my kids for the weekend, I am taking my two sons camping and hiking for the weekend - and I can’t wait!
We are heading for The Peak District, for 2 nights camping, eating wholesome food, fresh air, hiking, rock scrambling, sunshine (wishful thinking??) and fun outdoors.
For the kids, this means no TV, no games machines, no junk food.
For me it means no email (heaven!), no screen, no Internet (can I survive???) and lots of Daddy-bonding with my boys.
Core Principle 11 says - time outdoors in nature. That’s what this time is all about. This weekend we are all about Principle 11…I hope to engage my boys in the beauty and wonder of nature, the thrill of water, rocks, mud, forests, hills…while feeding them good food and keeping them fit using their bodies. This is a big part of what fathering is all about, I can’t wait!
