    Need to return to past days when kids were left alone to grow some self reliance skills, now they are driven everywhere to activities run by weak, liberal adults. Sign em up for hunters' training class, learn to live off the woods.

    And when are children going to learn anything for them selves if they cannot go outside unless accompanied. Sorry but there is a reason to teach your children what the rules are but there is also a time to teach them how to think for themselves. Yep my brother sister and I played in the woods but not during hunting season

    Glad the kids were found safe. Sometimes you can get turned around even if you are were you are supposed to be, why be punished for an accident? Some times posters need to think before typing - they were KIDS. Probably good kids that just got lost.

    Thank heaven for their safe return and for the people helping to locate them.

    Wonderful news indeed! I am so glad they were found and alive. Parents give them a good talking too and always know their where abouts. Teach them to be where they are supposed to be, if not there should be some kind of consequence.

    It is so nice to hear they are okay. Thank God they had the sense to stay in one place and huddle together.

  • Scubagirl Feb 22, 1:53 p.m.

    Glad they were found safely! Lessons learned all around I would say.

    Sounds like a fairy tale.

    I'm glad they're well and, as frightening as it was for their families, I'm glad the children had each other for company and warmth.

    Three cheers for the people who searched for them!
