Benefits of Nature for Children
I came across this article over a month ago by Dr. Laura Markham called "How Nature Makes Kids Calmer, Healthier and Smarter", and it continues to remain on my mind. It speaks to the benefits of nature for children, practical ways of creating an outdoor space for children, and ideas for spending time outside as a family. I hope you enjoy the read!
This blog idea has been in the making for some time now and I had the inner push to make it a reality. I have thought about many ideas that may help parents, and build upon a parents own inner resources and strengths. This blog draws upon positive parenting, eco parenting and neuroscience. I hope you can find some of the information helpful, and find meaningful ways to integrate in your own life.
