Wide-eyed kids are told facts, shown signs, and given bf experiences. If that isn't enough they even get to listen to a few scientists wax on about sasquatch.
But indoctrination into the unknown or unproven is nothing new.
Since there currently exists no scientific proof of these creatures, why not read the stories/reports (for fun), get out in the woods and explore the bf signs
"What do you think made this? How can we find out?
What is making that sound? How can we find out?
Does x prove the existence of bigfoot?
Where do you think it would live? Eat? How plausible is that ? Why?
Who is this bfspeaker we just listened to/read his book?"
and a million more and better thinking questions
Keep your beliefs if you want, but help kids to make up their own minds. To be critical thinkers who understand/appreciate the natural world and know the types of people who make up our real world, not passive believers who do not and end up preyed upon.
I've enjoy some classic dracula movies but I never made my kids sleep with garlic around their necks.
