Hey wait.. I just read all the replies above me.. so i'll make a post anyway..( the post I deleted was for a science thread)
My point was what this girl did was a Triumph of the Human Spirit. What would be poor was if this girl would have died out there with no help or
lacking the mental ability to think for herself to make sure she survived. Obviously this did not happen.
This may not have been a horrible ordeal for her.. you cant say that... you don't know that. Sure it had to be scary at first but she proved she was
stronger than her circumstances.
This IS what kids need today. Perhaps not as extreme (some would think oh that's still just horrible of me.).
Let me tell you.. for thousands of years kids were brought up in the wild and they either lived or died. YOU are here today because The Strong
survived. I don't think it's such a bad thing our kids get a taste of this. It could only serve to help them in the future - if any were traumatized
and left in a sadder state, it would only be because that's how society has conditioned us. Kids growing up in the wild didn't have such issues to
deal with from over protective parents or society.
Oh and I'm not only old enough to have kids, I'm old enough to have grand kids. I see way too many people coddle their kids and their kids turn out to
be wusses that don't have a clue how to handle the real tough situations society throws at them. Shame on me? No, Shame on you. A parents
responsibility to to teach their kids how to handle tough situations and not only survive, but thrive. If you don't have the guts to teach your kids
the skill they need to do this, then you are a bad parent.
This little girl didn't have this training from her parents. She found the strength to do it on her own. Nothing poor about that.
