There are many important issues that you might wish your child to pay attention to. Most parents want their children to grow up feeling compassion for others and able to think of things other than themselves. For many, considering the environment and how we can care for it is a huge part of that.
The planet will be inherited by your children and their children, so it's essential that we all try and look after it as best we can. You might be unsure about how to discuss the environment with your child. Try some of the following tips to get them to take an interest.
Spending Time in Nature
Enjoying what nature has to offer us is one of the best ways to get children interested in it. If you want them to care, make sure you show them that nature is something they can see, hear and feel.
Discuss Concerns for the Environment
It's important to talk about any concerns you might have for the environment. However, as well as introducing things to your child, you should listen to their concerns too.
Find Projects to Engage In
Getting involved with anything to do with the environment is often better than simply talking about it. Help your child realize that they can do things to help by coming up with projects together.
Explaining Scientific Concepts
Sometimes, explaining the scientific side of being an environmental warrior can be hard. The internet is often your best resource for this, as it is whenever your child asks you a difficult question.
