And the story strikes close to home as well, because I almost made the same mistake last year with my son. Like Zachary, he loves being outside, loves camping and survival shows, and last Christmas my wife and I surprised him with a Leatherman multi-tool, just like Les Stroud's. He was so proud of it he wanted to take it to school for show-and-tell. I enthusiastically said "sure thing, son." But my wife, a battle-hardened high school teacher who knows from zero-tolerance policies, reminded us both that to do so would violate the district's zero-tolerance policy and get us both in big trouble.
