“Put a teenager at sea aboard a tall ship for ten days and they will discover a world that is in harmony with their natural ambitions - the desire to explore and discover their true capabilities. Nature becomes their true teacher and motivator.”
Up until the start of the twentieth century, 98% of the world population lived on farms. Their daily lives revolved around the forces of nature and this daily contact helped people discover themselves. Man was designed to work in harmony with nature.
By the end of the twentieth century, 95% of the world population lives in cities. The influence of nature on man became minimal.
To replace this influence vacuum, man looked to counselors for guidance. Their success was spotty. Through lack of understanding the complexities of man's emotions, the needs of many teenagers were not addressed, they rebelled and engaged in self-destructive activities.
