Youngster at the Reigns

amish-young-drivers

A young Amish boy takes the empty wagon out to the field while his brother brings a load back. Every time there is any kind of farming accident involving kids around here, some people raise a ruckus and although the kid driving this wagon can hardly be 10 years old, I personally don’t think it is any of my business how they choose to teach their kids about work. Maybe I am wrong but I remember growing up and learning things the hard way and I believe it was for the good. As an example, our school playground had nothing but hard ground under you and we fell plenty of times, and a friend just told me about a playground being built and the rule was at least 10 inches of soft mulch. Holy cow,talk about raising a bunch of softies.Guess I am just starting to show my age.
