I am working on writing an article to submit to Mothering Magazine about the importance of getting outside and hiking with your child. How has hiking with your munchkin helped you? How has it benefitted your child? What are the challenges of doing it? Does having a group to get out with help? Is it routine for your family? Please email me with your thoughts. I would like to encourage others to get there own hiking and outdoor groups going and your insight is invaluable!
