Top Skills to Teach Your Kids/grandkids

Kind of figured I would throw this out there and see what type of response I could get. I guess it is more of a curiosity on my part to see what outdoor skills others want to teach their kids/ and or grandkids or have already taught them. Obviously most people on here are going to say:

#1 marksman skills

I concur but wonder what else? What other outdoor skills do you want to teach the young ones? Just think about it and now the floor is yours.

Gardening
Hunting and skinning-processing the kill
Fishing
Marksmanship
Archery
Genseng and yellow root harvesting
Morell mushroom harvesting
Fire building
Camping
Respect for the land and water
All of these things my dad taught me I know I forgot something but with these skills a person can live and eat with very little resources I think that a lot of people would parish because of being ignorant in these skills if we ever lost our way of life. Imagine some people without smart phones and Walmart....

Re: Top Skills to Teach Your Kids/grandkids

The thing that I work on with my son the most is navigation. I want him to learn how to get places and no depend solely on a GPS. He seems to not be blessed with a great sense of direction, but, he listens well and is learning. He is only 12, so there is plenty of time for him to figure it out. I took him hunting the other day and pointed markers to find your way back to the truck. He had a slight awe hah moment.

"You and only you are responsible for your actions" - this holds true in any outdoor activities as well as life in general.

We as parents/grandparents have the equal responsibility to set the right example by our actions as well as our words.

I continually ask them, how do you get back, {home truck camp} Know where your at, and how do you get there.
Safety and respect can cover so many topics, and actions.
