When accused of getting her pink outfit all dirty when she was young, my daughter promptly corrected her by saying “I’m not dirty, I’m all covered in Fun!”
Like I shared in Resilient Children Part 1, creative problem solving in response to the unknown is one of the great gifts of spending time in nature with a mentor. Coyote’s Path is one such nature mentoring program. check out this recent weekend description:
November Coyotes Path Story of the Day
I would love it if, as a culture, we realized that our greatest asset in raising Resilient Children was right in the back yard.
Resilience = Able to cope with change
Resilience = bounces back after significant impact
Here’s the Research:
Children need to Play in the Dirt to be Healthy, Too much clean and sterile is not good for them
Children who play in Natural Landscapes are more active and less sedentary
Children who play in nature are healthier, get better grades, cope with stress better, reduce obesity risk, and have increased creativity. Take that to the bank.
Happier, Healthier, Smarter…What else do we want ?
