You’re a parent. You like walking. You kinda want your offspring to like it too. What do you do? How do you start?

Well I’d say you can’t go far wrong with a good bit of pro-walking propaganda inserted into their lives at an early age. Propaganda such as this from Dick Bruna’s book, Boris on the Mountain.

Boris Bear loved climbing –
Climbing up a hill
The hill was steep, but that was why
It gave him such a thrill.

Does it work? Well come back to me in a few decades time and I’ll let you know.

Have your say
