In Iceland, kids go outside EVERY DAY for recess….It doesn’t matter if it’s hailing, snowing, raining, sleeting, or all of the above. I was asking Haley’s teacher about this and expressed some of my concerns. Her response: “Well, if it’s so windy that the kids can’t stand up, then we let them come inside.”
Wow… how thoughtful.
I’m not knocking the Icelandic way. Icelanders are the toughest people I’ve ever met, and toughening is something the Garman girls need a little bit of. It was with great delight that I watched my kids run out in the rain and play during the first Virginia rain shower. Thank you, Iceland….
