I love spring and all that it represents. From blooming trees and gardens to longer and warmer days it always makes me feel so happy and renewed.
In my award-winning children’s book Planting My Values I talk about planting seeds and watching them grow. It is a wonderful metaphor to use as we look to instill values in our children. From the time they are very young we have the power to plant these seeds in our children’s hearts, nurture, nourish, maintain and watch them blossom!
These are some of the core values I believe children should conquer on their journeys of self-discovery:
Help your child plant a garden this spring. If you have my book use it as a reference as you start to discuss the importance of growing their very own values in their life.
You can make it as simple as using an egg carton for your garden. You will need the following:
- Planting soil
- Sun & Water
- Maintenance and Care
