       all take care of nature -- A little dirt won't hurt (nor 
       will a little rain) -- Freedom with responsibility --

       village -- A Scandinavian mother's "get up and go outside"
       manifesto. 
520    "Bringing Up Bebe meets Last Child in the Woods in this 
       lively, insightful memoir about a mother who sets out to 
       discover if the nature-centric parenting philosophy of her
       native Scandinavia holds the key to healthier, happier 
       lives for her American children. When Swedish-born Linda 
       McGurk moved to small-town Indiana with her American 
       husband to start a family, she quickly realized that her 
       outdoorsy ways were not the norm. In Sweden children play 
       outside all year round, regardless of the weather, and 
       letting young babies nap outside in freezing temperatures 
       is not only common -- it is a practice recommended by 
       physicians. In the US, on the other hand, she found that 
       the playgrounds, which she had expected to find teeming 
       with children, were mostly deserted. In preschool, 
       children were getting drilled to learn academic skills, 
       while their Scandinavian counterparts were climbing trees,
       catching frogs, and learning how to compost. Worse, she 
       realized that giving her daughters the same freedom to 
       play outside that she had enjoyed as a child in Sweden 
       could quickly lead to a visit by Child Protective 
       Services. The brewing culture clash finally came to a head
       when McGurk was fined for letting her children play in a 
       local creek, setting off an online firestorm when she 
       expressed her anger and confusion on her blog. The rules 
       and parenting philosophies of her native country and her 
       adopted homeland were worlds apart. Struggling to fit in 
       and to decide what was best for her children, McGurk 
       turned to her own childhood for answers. Could the 
       Scandinavian philosophy of "there is no such thing as bad 
       weather, only bad clothes" be the key to better lives for 
       her American children? And how would her children's 
       relationships with nature change by introducing them to 
       Scandinavian concepts like friluftsliv ("open-air living")
       and hygge (the coziness and the simple pleasures of home)?
       McGurk embarked on a six-month-long journey to Sweden to 
       find out. There's No Such Thing as Bad Weather is a 
       fascinating personal narrative that highlights the 
       importance of spending time outdoors, and illustrates how 
       the Scandinavian culture could hold the key to raising 
       healthier, resilient, and confident children in America"--
