Camping Out Safety
It's kind of sad. Our children ask to sleep in our barn or sleep in the back yard. Our first year we did let them do it twice, but after the creepy incidents that have occurred we have been very hesitant to let them do it again. Part of me feels like we are depriving them of a fun childhood memory/activity, the other part of me says it's perfectly fine to protect our children. Another part of me wants to let them as long as they sleep out with the dog - he's turning out to be a very good watch dog now that he's getting older.
I grew up sleeping out in our tent and camper, both in our yard at home and at campgrounds. We went camping every summer and had so much fun.
How do you camp out safely in this day and age? Do any of you go camping?
