Learning from Nature

October 19, 2016
EcoParent

Mother Nature is an exquisite teacher. The oldest sage known to man, she continues to share her wisdom at every turn. Everything we know has been inspired by her. Medicine, technology, entertainment. It all originates in nature.

However, we’ve entered an era where we negate Mother Nature more than ever. Disconnected from the outdoors, many children today seldom get exposed to the valuable lessons she has to offer. The natural world is a place to connect, grow, and learn. It presents challenges that we must adapt to, and not the other way around. Unfortunately, most of us now spend more time indoors than out, and the wild world out there is more threatening than welcoming.
