This is a great talk by Gever Tulley at TED about 5 things you should let your kids do.
I need to get busy on this list with my kids. I did all of these when I was a kid. (Except ripping a CD, we didn’t have CDs when I was a kid…)
Hell, I learned how to drive in a ’58 Willy’s Jeep when I was 12. It was a blast.
And I have scars from pocket knives.
