I think the way the OP comes across is leading people to feel a little defensive.
I may live in the suburbia now, but I grew up in the country. However, my children are not used to it, so I have been working on it. We recently had a
little adventure where I took them to a fishing hole I used to spend a lot of time at as a child. We had to hike quite a distance, watch out for
rattle snakes, climb through blackberry bushes, ect. There are also mt. lions known to that area. By the end socks, shoelaces and pant legs were full
of stickers. and the kids got lessons in checking for ticks. Two were found. Overall it was a great learning experience, even though we didn't catch
any fish, but then you can't always rely on being able to catch your food. Luckily it was a great place to show them edible plants.
