We all want our children to have the best start in life and this includes being independent, resilient and happy, just as much as getting 3 good A-levels, but a lot of us haven’t had the courage to step outside the norm in the way we bring them up. Mike Fairclough has, and with huge success, and not only does he apply his principles to his own kids, but he runs a highly successful state school based on them too. Don’t be put off by the term “rewilding”, what this book explains is that getting kids out into nature and letting them go on adventures not only inspires them to discover and question, but also to be independent and feel confident and empowered. It explains how you should manage this process too so that they get the most out of it, plus you are relaxed and you get to go on adventures too!
