Kids want their wildhoods back.
They want to play not have playdates.
Get dirty not sanitized.
They want you to trade your parenting books
for a fishing rod.
They want to wander.
Be left alone for more than five minutes.
They want to sleep in a bunk.
Stare at the stars past their bedtime.
They want to eat with their hands.
Eat from a stick.
Visit their neighbour without a chaperone.
They want to run, skip, and roam free.
Let’s give them what they are truly missing.
Let’s give them back their wildhoods.
