Growing Up Wild:
The Wild Brothers share a peek in their day-to-day lives in a series of DVDs. Here, you’ll see exactly what it’s like to live in another country, while devoting your life to Christian missions. From looking inside different types of homes, to learning about other cultures’ traditions, this is a rare peek at life from another point of view.
The videos encourage kids to think about how they can make a difference and see exactly what modern day missions looks like, from the comfort of their homes.
There are 5 DVDs in the set of Growing Up Wild. Each DVD has 3 episodes. The episodes are short yet super entertaining.
The DVDs last about 45 minutes each, which is the perfect amount of time for kids’ small attention spans.

Our family especially enjoyed Volume 3’s “Doctor in the Hut.” I enjoyed seeing their daily routine, while the kids were impressed with the small boy’s machete cut.
It was neat to see how they offer medicine for free, as a way of showing God’s love to others.
The insight into another culture was eye-opening. My kids just couldn’t understand why people would cut off their child’s fingers to ward off evil spirits.
However, they couldn’t help but laugh when the family stuck a dead snake in their neighbor’s doorway. It was fun to see that life is still fun, even when the circumstances aren’t ideal.
Each episode also includes an Activity Guide. These are an awesome addition to the DVDs. They encourage kids to get up off the couch and really make a difference in the world.
From doing good deeds to researching common diseases, the activities are easy to complete!
No need to worry about tackling hard tasks. They teach kids that being the hands and feet of God doesn’t have to be complicated. Small acts of kindness can make a huge difference!
I choose not to print out the activity guides but instead simply ask the kids the questions, in a Charlotte Mason approach. This helps to ensure that the kids are learning from the DVDs, but I don’t need to mess with printing the worksheets out. (However, it’s perfectly fine if you choose to do so!)
