When Was the Last Time Your Family Went Camping?

The neighbor called to say that she just witnessed two young men driving a red Ford Taurus in the neighborhood driving probably 60 miles per hour hitting mailboxes with baseball bats. She got the first part of the license plate, but they were driving too fast to catch the rest of it. Unfortunately, the color of the car and the first three letters that she identified match your son’s car. Your son who should have been in school. Your son who was marked truant from his third hour class. The neighbor also explained that she did call police and share the same information, but she wanted you to know first that there had been a problem.

Tampering with a mailbox is considered a federal offense and you fear that this could be the beginning of a very long summer. School is only is session for two more weeks, and then you fear that your son will have too much idle time on his hand.

Connecting Today’s Youth to the Great Outdoors Can be a Solution to Many Problems
Teenagers who have too much time on their hands can find themselves in all kinds of trouble. As a result, there are a growing number of families who are doing everything that they can to stay connected to their children so they can all have a peaceful and enjoyable summer. For many of these families, the answer is to spend some time in the great outdoors. By packing up the live bait coolers and vacuum insulated tumblers, many families are able to take some of the comforts of home with them while experiencing sites and sounds that simply cannot be found when you are at home.

Soft side coolers filled with foods that can be cooked around a campfire are a great distraction from the troubles that teens can find back home when they are left unsupervised; live bait coolers provide a way to make sure that your bait is ready even on a long weekend fishing trip And while a camping or fishing trip may not be the solution for all that ails us, there is often something that can be gained from spending long hours hiking in the woods to appreciate all that the outdoors has to offer.

Fortunately, you do not need to travel far from home to experience the joys of camping. In fact, 59% of campers indicate that they stay within 100 miles of home. Substituting live bait coolers and fishing gear for a joy ride with a baseball bat may indeed be just what you need to keep your teenager safer this summer.
