7 Reasons why Kids should Garden

This month’s blog shares 7 reasons why kids should garden. In addition to gardening to teach kids about food and nutrition it can also be a chance to teach responsibility, hard work, or even sharing a common interest with your children.

Looking back I remember times when every spring my parents had us working in the garden, choosing the plants, helping with the planting, weeding, and raking. They kept my brother and I busy! The time we spent in the garden proved to teach us discipline and so I hope that the info-graphic I created may encourage you and your family to go out and have some fun!

Transforming Family Connections

This morning I came across this great article shared by a friend via facebook. It’s about the importance of eating together as a family. This article is entitled Stimulate Family Meals to Transform Family Connections by Dr. Tim Hagan.

Dr. Tim Hagan is a clinical psychologist with a passion for helping families make lasting connections.

His article offers two great tips for making family meal time happen. The first is making time in one’s busy schedule whether it’s for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The second is to be flexible and persevere even when it’s difficult or inconvenient to find time. Your loved ones are worth even an hour.

Here’s the link to the article. May it be inspiring to you and your family!
