How can we raise our children to be the stewards of this next generation? To be the ones that can carry on with values, with creativity, with compassion, with commitment? Sheila and Maria talk about the importance of establishing a family culture that values play and preserves childhood.
“Play is the only way the highest intelligence of humankind can unfold.” - Joseph Chilton Pierce
There's such truth to this quote and this is really what this podcast is all about. While childhood has been changing so much over the years, it is still vitally important that we play and preserve childhood for the next generation. As parents, we are the guardians of childhood and it is our role to make sure that our children are given the time and space to play, to explore, to create, and to learn in nature. We have to really look at the boundaries we have to set for our children. In this episode, we offer ideas and suggestions to support you in your parenting journey to be present and focused on preserving childhood for your family.
