    8 Things Every Kid Should Experience | Team Mom - Yahoo! Shine
    snipped
    As a kid, I experienced all of those.
    There are a few things I think should be added.....
    Jumping your bicycle
    Catch a fish
    The beach
    A fist fight (if you are a boy)
    Hear the words "I love you" spoken to you

    I'm sure some of you can add more thoughts.

    catching lightening bugs and letting them go.
    same with butterflies.
    Flying a kite.
    Rollerskating on sidewalks.
    Taking off on bike for picnic at park, no moms invited.
    Walking home from school.
    Probably not possible, but a paper route. Mine was for a grocer, penny per door.

    Playing in a creek, catching frogs, tadpoles, salamanders and crawdads. Skipping stones.

    OMG! I remember going to Salt Creek and finding a new born pup. Maggots covering it. The creek had posted signs of 'avoid contact, wash hand thoroughly if in contact.' Took the closed eyed-maggot covered pup home. Brought it to my mom and said, "Save it." Screaming ensued. She took care of. Sigh.
