Neal's philosophy on Parenting:

I don't like tricking kids: I don't want them to behave well because they think they're being watched by an elf on a shelf, I want them to do what is right because they have an internal moral compass that guides them. I don't want them to eat their vegetables because I successfully hid them in their meal. I want their palettes to develop to love veggies. I don't want my kids to go nuts the second my back is turned. I want truly good little human beings.

Tim's Philosophy on Parenting: 

I'm trying to safely expose my children to the real world and the risks and fun in it. I'm trying to balance modern fun and conveniences with understanding nature and the outdoors. And I'm trying to give them the experience and the perspective to increasingly make their own decisions in life.
