Call of the Wild + Free – how Ainsley Arment ruined school for me, forever

call of the wild and free

Sharing is caring!

There are so many good quotes in this book and so many good ideas that I don’t really know where to start. However, what inspired me to crack open my laptop @ 11:05 pm when I should be sleeping on this post Thanksgiving Monday was this quote about time outside in nature:

“It is the important work. Being in nature, as Louv wrote, helps children “realize that school isn’t supposed to be a polite form of incarceration, but a portal to a wider world.”

This quote and the whole book really made me re- realize that we owe our children freedom|childhood. To be children is to be free: to know you will be fed and to have time to just be. This is the entitlement of every child, it is the entitlement of humanity.

Sharing is caring!
