How far

100_5122My husband and I have talked about where kids can go on their own before and depending on where you live I know it’s different. I remember exploring outside everyday when I was little and I think when I was a little older I rode my bike almost a mile one way or the other on our street. Playing outside is important and it’s a shame that we have restrictions but it’s the society we live in I guess. One thing I enjoy is going to a nearby park (which is in the woods) and there’s so much to explore in open and wooded areas. There aren’t the cars to worry about or people driving up to take your kids I guess. That sounds so awful but that’s what I usually think of course. Mothers have that worst case scenario down don’t we?

One thought on “How far

  1. I’m one of those “Free range parents” and am always saddened by the overly controlling fear-based ‘rules’ for society today.
    It’s good to see others who teach their kids independence, appreciation for the outdoors, and such.
    Sadly, while I have a nice rural property, our road is sidewalk-less, and a main cut-across between towns so there is a LOT of overly-speedy traffic preventing quick bike rides around the house.

    Lovely picture though, and it captures the sense of adventure Kids naturally have, not even looking back to cling to Mommy. 🙂 Congrats!
