In our over-consuming culture, it’s important to teach our kids healthy habits, in order to preserve our earth for our future generations. What better time to discuss this than while we celebrate Earth Day?
Our kids learn by our example. Unfortunately, today’s children are an “on-demand” generation. They will never know what life was like before being able to simply text a friend and get an immediate response. They’ll never know the anticipation of waiting for a handwritten letter to make it’s way to your mailbox. They’ll never experience the joy of having an entire meal that was grown on their own land.
As parents, it’s our job to teach our kids what we can do to help save the earth. Whether it’s big or small, there is always room for improvement. We all know we need to REDUCE, REUSE and RECYCLE but by breaking it down into small habits, we can help our kids understand their impact on our world.
