The good old days were never quite that fab for those living in them, but I
am often shocked at how little kids (and adults) know about the basics of
survival. Honestly. Understanding the shelter, water, food concept is
missed by many.
I also think it is a shame to be too squeamish about killing animals to eat.
If we are not vegetarians, we have little room to complain and I think it is
a good way to separate the animal fantasies from animal realities.
This does not mean that parents won't go nuts, just that they shouldn't :>
As long as you let them know what you are doing in advance and why you
should be OK.
