We found a list of "10 Things Every Kid Should Experience Before They're 10"!
It's a pretty good list.  Tell us which ones you think are the best, and what should be added to this list.  You can comment on our facebook page.

  1. Having a pet -- We welcomed home our very first pup this past weekend, and the effect he's had on my son already is astonishing. This little guy is teaching him patience, kindness, and is also reminding him that he doesn't always have to be the center of attention. (Total plus.)
  2. Earning money -- I know they're way too young to go out and get a job ... but even something as simple as giving our kids an allowance for doing chores around the house is a great way to teach them some responsibility.
  3. Taking a trip to Disney -- I know, I know, it sounds kind of frivolous and cliché. But it really is freakin' magical the first time your kid sees the mouse. In order to get the full effect, you have to take 'em when they're still easily impressed.
  4. Giving back to the community -- Whether it be collecting items for a local food pantry, adopting a family around the holidays, or doing some other kind of service project -- kids need to understand that giving feels just as good, if not better than receiving.
  5. Going camping -- There's really no better way to teach your child how wonderful nature is than giving him the chance to sleep under the stars. And it can be fun for parents too. (At least that's what I've been told.)
  6. Having a sleepover with a friend -- Let's be honest ... staying up late, eating junk food, and telling ghost stories kind of loses its luster after the age of 10 or so. Sleepovers are memories every child will treasure forever.
  7. Being part of a team -- Whether it's sports or some other group activity, kids need to learn how to work together and play fair. And encouraging a little competitiveness can't hurt either ...
  8. Traveling by airplane -- Every time I hear a child say he's never been on a plane, I feel a little bad for him. Again ... it's really something that's only exciting when you're young. The older you get, the more of a hassle air travel becomes.
  9. Going on a road trip -- By the same token, planes are all sorts of fun, but kids need to take good old-fashioned car trips complete with car games and the whole nine yards -- like we did when we were young.
  10. Feeling disappointed -- It's awful to see our children upset. But they need to learn that it's ok if they don't always get their way. Nothing builds character quite like a blow to the ego. It may sting initially, but it's so good for them in the long run to learn that life sometimes is not fair.
