There's No Such Thing as Bad Weather

Linda Åkeson McGurk

Overview

The weather in Scandinavia is colder, darker, and much harsher than it is in most parts of the U.S. And yet, Scandinavians have built a culture around spending as much time outside as they possibly can. While school recesses are being cut short all across America, Scandinavian children are having multiple outdoor classes a day despite freezing temperatures. How does this emphasis on outdoor play affect children?

Linda Åkeson McGurk is a photographer, author, and blogger who specializes in parenting philosophies. McGurk has witnessed first-hand the difference in raising children in Sweden versus America.

In There's No Such Thing as Bad Weather, McGurk lays out the benefits of Scandinavian parenting, which emphasizes freedom, play, and an exploration of nature.

Favorite Quote

"Nobody wants to be in the last generation that remembers when it was considered normal and expected for children to go outside and play. Nobody."
