I'm pretty sure that was cucumbers, and it is in effect... if you buy conventional cucumbers you'll find that they are pretty much all straight and can only deviate so much from eachother in size...

Why is the school responsible for teaching "wilderness" type activities?

Isn't that the parents job?

Maybe they're teaching them independence, confidence and technique, science. Not everything must be taught within the confines of a brick building with fluorescent lights. Some things can be absorbed more easily in a natural setting.

Wilderness??? Those activities are teaching hand and eye coordination - whitling, physical education, science - stomping through water (displacement) and climbing hills (gravity), and climbing trees:


Scaling a tree teaches them vital lessons, such as dexterity, risk assessment, focus, and planning. They have to decide how high they’re comfortable climbing, the best way to get there, which branches look sturdiest, and figure out how to get back down. A successful climb builds confidence, gives them a sense of freedom, and helps them appreciate nature. An unsuccessful climb has the most valuable lesson a child can learn: how to pick themselves up and get right back at it again.--------theriskykids.com...

Bullpucky because I believe school should be academic and parents responsible for wilderness type activity?

Raising grandkids now. Trying not to make the same mistakes I did with my own.

We are not a wilderness society. It serves little purpose in today's world.

I agree. Our kids should be spending time at home playing video games and IF they go out we should make sure they always wear a helmet and other safety gear in case they fall and possibly(could have) scraped their knee(s).

You can't protect them. You do more damage to them if you try.


Brilliant you are a great parent...we allowed ours to climb trees and ladders and build their own cubbyhouses with god forbid, hammers &nails and saws and drills.
