Outdoor games are essential for children, its like physical exercise and helps in growing, increasing will power, immunity and many more. Outdoor games should be there for children.Writing Firm Thursday 28 June, 2012 - 9:37 PM
Going outdoors regularly is essential for children. My wife and I have been members of a large thirty year old family orientated car club for many years. We, along with many other members and their children, have taken our kids on countless camping, sightseeing and educational trips everywhere from the beautiful Victorian High Country to the tropics of Queensland to the central deserts of South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory. We have even been on some of Len Beadell's "highways". These trips have been anything from daily outings close to home to some that took many weeks. Unfortunately our efforts have come in for a lot of criticism in recent years in the media and talk back radio. The reason being we are some of those social outcasts who own a four wheel drive and have the hide to drive it in the city where we live..Greg O Wednesday 27 June, 2012 - 10:28 PM
