THE UNSAFE CHILD: Less Outdoor Play is Causing More Harm than Good

THE UNSAFE CHILD: Less Outdoor Play is Causing More Harm than Good | Scouting Adventures | Scoop.it
A child’s neurological system is naturally designed to seek out the sensory input it needs in order to develop into a strong and capable individual. For instance, if a child starts jumping off small rocks, that is because their brain is ready for this type of activity. If a child is spinning in circles just for fun, it is because he or she needs that sensory input. If they climb a tree effortlessly, it means they are capable of doing so.

La mujer en el Movimiento Scout

En 1909, al regreso de su viaje a Argentina, Baden Powell asistió a una exhibición scout en el Crystal Palace de Londres. Cuando llegó el momento del desfile de las delegaciones todos se sorprendieron porque el fenómeno se había contagiado a las mujeres scouts. En general, la opinión popular de ese entonces era contraria a que las muchachas jóvenes realizaran las pruebas y destrezas que ejecutaban los varones, razón por la cual Agnes Baden-Powell decidió escribir un folleto que promoviera una opción adecuada para las niñas.

En 1909, Agnes y Robert publicaron conjuntamente dos libros cuyos títulos fueron: Pamphlet A: Baden-Powell Girl Guides, a Suggestion for Character Training for Girls y Pamphlet B: Baden-Powell Girl Guides, a Suggestion for Character Training for Girls.

Dr. Jose Lepervanche Net's insight:

“Cuando uno se hace Scout, se compromete a ser Scout siempre. Nuestro lema es, Scout un día, Scout para toda la vida. Cuando surgió el brote de ébola en el país, UNICEF ayudó a los Scouts a distribuir materiales de higiene por las comunidades. La gente confiaba en nosotros, y por eso podíamos ayudar a convencerlos de que la enfermedad era de verdad y enseñarlos a tomar las precauciones adecuadas para protegerse. Si miro atrás, me siento orgulloso como Scout de haber contribuido a formar a tantos jóvenes que ahora se están volcando en sus comunidades”.

Gen. Paul Selva, our country’s second highest-ranking military officer and a four-star general, is no stranger to Scouting. He’s an Eagle Scout.

So when he talks about the value of Scouting, he’s speaking from experience.

“Leaders aren’t born,” he said. “They come from a lifetime of curiosity and development. You guys are starting that journey.”
