Letting your four children, ages roughly eight through twelve, sail out to an island in the middle of the lake to camp.  Without adult supervision.

If you've read Swallows and Amazons, by Arthur Ransome, then you know what I'm talking about.

If you haven't, you should.

I just discovered that a movie was made in 1974. Watching it now and it's quite entertaining, so far.

I think it's a splendid idea, personally. Too many people have forgotten what it's like to be a child. You have to be able to have a little freedom and test yourself.
