On The Women’s Outdoor News website, this article suggests using games to help teach children to be aware of their surroundings.
These games take place when were out-and-about, especially when traveling. My boys are 21- and 22-years-old, and we still partake in them from time-to-time.
- Soon after being seated on an airplane, I ask my boys to close their eyes. I then ask them to tell me where the nearest exit is, and how many other exits there are.
- Part way through dinner at a restaurant we’ve never visited, I ask them to look down at the table. Then I ask where the nearest exit is – besides the one we came in through. I also ask them to describe some of the people sitting around us.
- If we’re at home, I’ve often asked them to think back to places we regularly visit, like the grocery, coffee shop or box store. I have them describe where the exits are located.
