How Do You Define Adventurous Parenting?

Usually when you set off to write a report or dig into a topic, you need to define your terms. It is important that your reader understands how you define certain concepts so that you’re able to take off from the same launch point. That being said, something that is fun about The Adventures in Parenthood Project is my quest to pick apart some of the concepts surrounding adventurous parenting, including the very definition of these two words.

So, to help me make some headway, I put a question out to my community of outdoor family bloggers: How do you define “adventurous parenting?”. Their answers reveal a broad spectrum of perspectives, from “parenting is adventurous in itself” to qualities that make one parenting style more adventurous than others. It’s not about being better or worse at parenting; the reality is that some people are willing to do things with their children that others are not, and it’s all a matter of choice. I’ll leave you to read their definitions, and please take some time to provide your own in the comment of this post!

Mother of All Bucket Lists: Tanya Koob

Tanya, a full-time mom, part-time office administrator and budding writer, found her love for hiking after university in the mountains of South Korea, where she was teaching English. Upon returning to Canada, her love for outdoor adventure grew alongside a new love in her life, her (now husband) Mark, who also enjoyed hiking and scrambling. Over the years they began to tackle bigger objectives and Tanya developed a fairly extensive (and impressive) bucket list of trails, treks and peaks she wanted to “tag” prior to settling down and starting a family.
