We live 3 blocks from the school. We walk to and from school every day.It takes us roughly 5 minutes.
Today my son's teacher asked me if we would be walking this winter "with all the snow and everything"
Umm,yeah? She once again asked if we wanted the bus.
Yeah,because getting him on the bus at 7 am,and having an hour's ride makes so much more sense than walking the SAME 3 short blocks in the winter.
I said,well,we'll just leave a few minutes earlier (and there's such a thing as winter outerwear)
Wow. I never thought I'd see kids so wimpy,or adults thinking that a child walking 3 blocks to school is unheard of.
I commented that when I was a kid,we walked in all sorts of weather. She should know. She's in her late 50's for crying out loud.
OMG! I so agree. I picked up the kids from school yesterday in carpool. It was raining (not hard, just a sprinkle). They walked every child out of the school under an umbrella, one carload at a time. It took forever and I was there early. I was amazed that they felt that a little rain would melt our delicate little flowers.
When I was their age I was made to walk home in a blizzard. We lived a couple blocks from school, but when I say blizzard I'm not kidding. My mom sent my brother out to bring me a hat and we passed each other on the street without seeing each other it was snowing and blowing so hard. Reality is going to keep hitting younger generations harder and harder if we keep them safely tucked in bubble wrap until they are adults.
