As parents, how do we teach our kids that there is a world beyond social media, standardized tests and soccer practice? In April, Eddie Bauer athlete David Morton and his 8-year-old son Thorne embarked on a five day stand-up-paddleboard journey down the Karnali River in Western Nepal. David makes his living guiding some of the world’s most incredible peaks and Nepal is like a second home. He wanted to deepen Thorne’s understanding of the world beyond their Seattle neighborhood. Engaging with this world helps us grow. “There’s a basic paradox to parenting,” says David. “ You have to keep your kids safe, but you have to teach them to take risks and follow curiosity. Life is undeniably richer with a little bit of daring."
