Yes, parents need to involve their kids in outdoor activity--camping, paddling, hiking, fishing, hunting, etc.--but it does seem that parents, too, no longer do those things. The number of hunting licenses issued in many states is declining; in other words, adults, not just teens and younger, are staying indoors. What the schools require--testing, testing, testing--is what the parents demand! Schools do what their communities demand--or what they think their communities demand. The entire culture has changed and is changing. It is not good.
