There’s a preschool in our neighboring town that brings its students into the woods to play.  I pass by them as I walk my dog.  They carry big sticks to build  forts and run around exploring and singing.  

 

Why do we think that this should stop at age four?  

 

My son is a freshman in high school.  Running around in the woods all day is exactly what he needs right now.  I feel a sense of longing and sadness as I watch the children be free - to explore and create.

 

I had those same feelings as I watched the movie Jungle Book.  I could see my son in Mogley, traipsing around the jungle, swinging in the trees, creating things.  

 

Except he doesn’t.
