I believe the best thing a parent can do for a child is show him or her how to plant seeds and watch plants grow. Parents who do that are teaching their children how to survive even when they are going through tough times financially and how to be patient.
It is good for us to prepare our children to face the many challenges that life will throw at them from time to time.Children will be learning how to take care of one of their most basic needs.
Having food to eat is very important and we should all be teaching our children survival skills. One of the greatest survival skill we can teach our children is how to take care of a garden. We are not preparing them to be farmer even though nothing is wrong with that. We are simply facing reality and helping them to do the same.
I spoke to a young man recently who is doing well in his career and he spoke about his garden that he took care of after he left high school and waited to be employed. His father had given him a small plot of land and some seeds as soon as he became a teenager and he was kept busy even after his graduation.It is clear that there are some children who feel as if they have accomplished a lot after they have planted a seed and they eventually have something they can eat after they have watered their plant and watched it grow.
Now that there is so much pesticide on the fruits and vegetables that are found in Supermarkets and markets, children who know how to plant their own food will be keeping themselves healthy when they grow up, when they know how to plant their own fruits and vegetables.
If you are having problems when you are trying to persuade your children that gardening is something they will enjoy. You can give them a copy of this book below. It is all about the great experiences they can have when they plant a seed and watch it grow.
Children Learning about Environmental Protection
Children like doing what they see adults doing, so you can start gardening first and they will eventually get interested in what you are doing and find ways to get involved.
You can tell the children about nutrition and health when you are teaching them about gardening and they will learn about nature and how food is produced in this fast pace world that they are living in, that is important.
When they know how important it is to have growing trees around, they will want to replant trees if they should ever cut them down. This is how we will finally have a generation of humans who will treat the environment well.
Composting and other facts our children should know
You will be using all your kitchen scraps to grow healthy plants as you teach your children how they can do more for the soil and their own health. You will find that your children will be more aware of all the issues we the parents and the environmentalists are thinking about at this time, since the soil is more toxic and we know that pesticides are bad for us, the sea level is rising, there is deforestation and there is Global warming.
Children will also want about the many animals and insects that are going extinct, they are the ones who will be making decisions about the protection of the planet in the future. Children will want to protect the animals when they know what is causing them to disappear from the planet.
When we do gardening we learn how to relax and enjoy nature. Children will thank the adults who teach them how to enjoy the simple pleasures of life. The children who are involved in environmental clubs at their schools will enjoy having books to read about Tree planting, reducing, reusing and recycling plastic and how all living creatures can benefit from these activities.

Children will learn to be solution finders when they are more aware of the problems that are being faced by everyone on the planet because of the plastic pollution and the other issues that we have at this time, such as Global Warming, deforestation and all the others.
Drastic change is needed now and our children should be told about it so they can be prepared to do all the things to make their lives great.
Children will enjoy protecting the environment when they learn how to make toys and gifts with used plastic, they will also be learning about the effect plastic is having on the environment. It will be much easier to get these children to carry reusable items with them when they are leaving their homes, and reduce plastic waste as they will be equipped with the information they need to have about protecting the environment.
For many years no one seemed to care about the way we treated the environment and we now have many problems, so let us start spreading the word about environmental protection awareness in a new way so that the change that we want to see will become a reality one day.
