    <<Children in Wales are being given special "lessons" in how to have fun outdoors amid worries that
    a generation is growing up scared of playing outside.>>

    Interesting little news item. Funny how it carefully skirts around the issue of *why* kids are
    scared of the outdoors. It couldn't be because their parents and the mass media have been
    drumming exaggerated tales of bogeymen and horrific accidents into them for a couple of decades
    now, could it?

    Or could it be 1000% other reasons.
