Re: Reasons to ban children from cruising!

This is a must-see for anyone with strong opinions about kids on boats, either way:



Talk about an adventure playground! ... Lucky them.

(what did Ransome say about duffers, and drowning?)

It used to be that the instincts of women were considered valuable in respect of small children, and deferred to.

When kids (especially boys) were of an age to wander, their care was entrusted to men, whose different instincts were similarly deferred to, as the mother of the kids in "Swallows and Amazons" did in writing to their father, and in following his advice.

Now it seems everybody in the 'developed' world hovers over children with the intensity of an earlier-era mother (a neurotic one, at that) with a baby, until they've left home.

If they're lucky.

They are prone to mutinous behaviour!
