Teaching my kids about Conservationism

By
Real Estate Agent with The Hogan Group at Keller Williams Realty

Part 2

So I had an epiphany this morning. I was out turning my compost pile when my son walked out in his PJ's kinda fuzzy eyed and asked what I was doing. So I explained that I was turning the compost pile to help the decompostion process. Wow... I opened a WHOLE can of worms with that one. A 8 yr old boy really knows how to ask questions. For the next 20 minutes he asked question after question about composting, recycling, gardening, plants etc.

Thats when the epiphany happened. It's only been the past few years that I've really tuned into the need and benefits of conserving and reusing. But I've neglected to teach my kids. So Im brainstorming ideas on how to get my kids involved. Here's my thinking- Im going to give my kids the challenge to think of ways we can conserve and reuse. I'll suggest things like recycling, conserving natural resources, composting, gardening, etc.

This could be fun- although my new 6th grader will probably think Im a total dork. I'll keep you up to date on our progress.
