Adding outdoor adventure to the family mix
NOW summers finally here, its time to take your whole brood outdoors and create some lasting memories.
Lisa Salmon is inspired by two adventure experts who have written The Family Guide to the Great Outdoors
THE electronic age, combined with an increasing tendency to wrap children in cotton wool, means kids are staying inside more than ever.
But while hours spent playing on a computer or watching TV may keep kids entertained, theres one thing for sure: electronic entertainment is not what childhood memories are made of.
Memories come from doing things like climbing trees, making dens, sitting round a campfire and generally having fun outdoors, say Charlie and Caroline Gladstone, who have written The Family Guide to the Great Outdoors to encourage more families to get out and about together.
The married couple have picked up a wealth of knowledge about the great outdoors since they abandoned the London rat race when their first child was born more than 20 years ago, and moved to a farm in Kincardineshire.
