RICHMOND, B.C. — Go RVing Canada has released its first commercial celebrating what it calls the “wildhood” of children and showing how RV adventures can help kids be kids.

The audio is a powerful, compelling plea to parents on behalf of a child who wants his “wildhood” back. Here is the script:
“Kids want their wildhood back. They want to play, not have play dates. They want to get dirty, not sanitized.
“They want you to trade your helicopter for an RV . . . your parenting books for a fishing rod. They want to wander . . . to be left alone for more than five minutes.
“They want to sleep in a bunk, and stare at the stars past their bedtime. They want to eat with their hands . . . eat from a stick . . . visit their neighbor without a chaperone.
“They want to run, skip and run free.
“Let’s give them back what they are truly missing — let’s give them back their wildhoods.”
