I have worked as a teacher and outdoor ed person for many years. I have been amazed by what kids can do when they are put to it. I hiked with them all over the White Mnts of VT in the US etc. I recently finished 2 weeks as the volunteer at the guesthouse in León. I saw several familie with girls and boys from about 7 to 14, walking and on bikes. And they were all fine. But there was one family from Paris doing it with two toddlers in a 3-wheeled buggy. They were staying in the guesthouse. At one point, the older of the two was screaming, running all over, attacking his father and throwing a tizzy fit. Literally, I had to leave the patio. You might say that's my problem. But does a child that young belong in an environment like a crowded Camino gueshouse? I know some other parents have done it with even yuonger. But that doesn't answer the question. What does the very young child get out of it? What energy does the parent put into caring for the baby that takes away form the Camino experience? Please don't dismiss the quesiton as the grumping of an older man. I've worked professionally with children of many ages for 40 years. But is the Camino and a crowded guesthouse the place for them?
