So i hear about this ritual years ago from a coworker who was from there and how his mom would do this to him. I could never tell if he was serious or just joking... until now. Good read.
Cliff notes version:
interesting story about the dutch and their summertime testing of their children's resolve... send them to the woods, blindfolded, disoriented, without a way to get home. They gotta figure it out themselves.
I think here in this country, we call this ritual --- a reason for an arrest of a parent. lol.
yea, i guess if you grow up in that culture... you don't hate it. my former coworker never had any resentment towards his mom for doing this from what he told me. i guess his kids are coming up next. Hopefully big Bear isn't waiting in the darkness.
still sounds like one of the dumbest ideas I've ever heard of - but just my opinion of course.
Up next, USA droppings. Drop your 6 year old kid in a locked car during summer. See if he/she can figure out how to escape before dying of a heat stroke...
It's common in other places too. Heard that scouts in the US sometimes do a variation of orienteering like the article is about. A guy I used to train from Ukraine told me stories about having to do this as a kid. He and his pals had to travel for days though.
