Rural vs. Urban Living
Think about your childhood. Is there anything you would change? How or where you grew up? For me, I would have loved to grow up on a farm. It shapes your life and your personality. You learn to be self-sufficient and work as a team with other people. You grow up never being afraid of a little hard work and never afraid to get dirty. Growing up on a farm creates a well-rounded beneficial citizen because it endows you knowledge, appreciation and respect for people and land.
Learning to Drive
Children who grow up on farms learn to drive earlier than most kids. Farm kids usually learn to drive before the age of 15.
Showing at Fairs
Kids learn to teach their animals to show in the 4H fair. They grow knowledge about the animal's body and the animal itself. They also learn to be confident in front of other people.
