Help kids travel, not stay safe

In life’s journey our ability to travel is more important than any destination. Children build sand castles not because they want to have one, but because they want to be able to make one. When they climb a tree they are not exploring the tree so much as they are exploring their own courage and judgment. The same is true for acquiring happiness, wealth and security. It is normal to wish that we could guarantee our children’s futures for them, to eliminate all sources of adversity and uncertainty, to see them safely to their destination. It can’t be done. Much of the preoccupation of youth with risky, antisocial and self-defeating activities is an attempt to find that which is missing from their lives. – Ken Low
