|Dill, Dad (Nate) and Kiera building a fort|
When I was young we never wanted to be inside or near our parents! We wanted to play kick ball, climb trees, ride bikes, catch fireflies, build a clubhouse and explore the woods out back. I couldn't imagine just sitting inside all summer! It would've been like a punishment to me and my brothers and sister. WE woke up, got dressed and went outside to plan our fun adventure for the day!

go on Facebook, and watch TV. They will only play something if my husband and I play with them, and pretty much make them, or when they have friends over. Even when they have friends over though, they want to hang out inside more.
I started wondering again....am I the only parent that feels this way? I decided to ask some of my friends and my kids friends parents about it and I found out that it's not just me! Most parents I talked to agreed that their kids did the same things. I then talked to my husband Nathan about it and he had said that he felt the same way.
