Weekend Round Up February 24, 2017

Here’s what we’ve been reading this week:

In keeping with the theme of recent weekend round-ups here are two articles that highlight some of the challenges and myths associated with raising nature-loving and adventurous kids.

This article is all about taking your kids outdoors and the emotions that can go unspoken when pushing outside of your comfort zone.


Raising an outdoorsy and adventurous kid can be really tough and there is no formula for what is going to work best for you, your family and your children. This post highlights some of the myths associated with raising a child that loves the outdoors.

Whatever your hobbies were before having children, there is no question that the frequency at which you participate in them will change once having children. Here is an article on one dad’s experience of integrating family into his hobbies.

This post from the the conversation.com discusses some of the ways that we can make subtle linguistic shifts in framing conversations with our kids to help them see through stereotypes and generalizations.

We hope you all have a great weekend and get outdoors!

-The Dads
