They are smart enough to know what concerns them and their own children if we just make them aware and se an example!

Children love to learn. If they grow up seeing their parents caring about the Earth they develop their own appreciation naturally. I did through my upbringing and my children did too. And when I see my small grandchild full of wonder watching a bee hard at work I know that she will appreciate this beautiful planet too.

Take your children to your local accredited zoo and enroll them in educational programs! Teach them to love the earth and all the animals!

Get out with children & start an organically grown garden with heirloom organic seed. Let children find out how food is grown & how great gardening & growing one's own food can be. Shop resale with the kiddos to teach them that a used item can be great, donate to resale, make gifts & useable items out of what you have, creating & re purposing is really fun. My 6 yr. old grandson fashioned his own 'bad dream catcher' with a bendable twig from an apple tree, some twist ties, a couple beads & lots of imagination! It was really great to watch him think about & create his 'catcher'. We hung it on the bedside lamp. He also created a 'good dream attrackter' to hang on the outside bedroom door handle. Get away from the electronics & outdoors.
