Holy shit that sounds fun :D How does it work out? (How would they sense it and stuff?). Also i'm a little for the letting them get a little dirty. But, not when there little kids. Maybe around 10 years old give them a little bit of freedom. Then when theyre teenagers let them do stuff on their own. Hell, i'm only 14 and i know this from experience. My mum is overprotective (or was) and my dad was a little laid back. I got grounded for two months just by arguing for a little freedom. Plus, i wouldnt really know half the stuff i do (like PSIONICS) without experimenting a little. Just don't do Straightsilver's old school Asian teaching (like my grandpa tried to do to me). The whole, throw your kid into the deep water and tell him to swim or die.

I have no idea what you mean by 'get a little bit dirty', in that context, lol.

Meaning you should experience things and do some things for yourself.

shining, for specific abilities yes, for instance i'll let my daughter decide on what aspect of psionics she wants to concentrate in, but i'll help her with the general stuff as much as possible along the way.
