The world is constantly evolving and sometimes we forget something that has been there all along, keeps us alive and makes the world go around: nature.
Technology is increasingly separating us from the natural world around us. 30 years ago children would put on their wellies and run out into the garden to play and splash in the rain. Now, children tend to sit on their iPad playing virtual games. It seems that over the years, humanity is gradually losing its connection with nature as the connection is transferred to technology.
Being surrounded by nature and natural items provides infinite benefits to children. Nature is a part of everyones sense of beauty and calmness. Exposing us to things that are alive and growing which ultimately provides endless curiosity and satisfaction for children. Our children should all be at one with nature and educated on the natural world to enhance our inner being and inner peace. With an adult as a guide, children can learn about respecting living things, they can play, they can be happy and begin to become deeply fascinated by the endless hours of fun that nature can provide. Imagination comes into play as children create special places and use natural items to create stories and play. All senses become engaged when children interact with the natural world. Self-esteem can thrive outdoors because nature doesn’t judge people. In this world judgements are becoming increasingly easy to get made especially due to the surge in the realms of social media which has led to huge increases in things like cyber bullying. Keeping your children at one with nature can increase their confidence for a lifetime and provide them with the self-esteem they need to stay strong in the situations that life throws at them. At a time when bullying is prevalent (even in preschools), exposure to nature can help remind children that the world contains an infinite variety of things and ultimately, all are important and that the people who make a nasty comment or pick on you: are not important.
