I love those ideas. My teenagers have yet to sit behind the wheel of a car. Although we live on the subway line and take public transit and ride bicycles and walk, I think driving is a good skill to have. Should have been practicing with them on the quiet, private road years ago. My son has a Swiss army knife, though. And they have some experience with managing fire. But, yeah, we don't give kids enough autonomy these days.

I love it when rational thoughts surface and remind us how silly we have become! It is so true that we as a society have so rigidly structured our childrens lives that we tend to lose focus on how children really learn. Kudos to Gever for reminding us how we grew up.

March Break in Ontario seems like the ideal time to think about this. You don't have to agree with each of the five things! This certainly resonates with me even though I have never thrown a spear... but I don't want to give away too much. :)
