Episode 13: Kids & Nature

By SIM

Jana (mom of 1) and Melissa (mom of 2) talk about kids and nature: why they need it and how we can make sure they get it. They chat with host Tenille Lafontaine about:

  • why spending time in nature is important for their families
  • easy tips for starting to spend more time outside
  • the important role grandparents can play


As educators, Jana and Melissa share their thoughts on:

  • how schools and communities can make it easier for kids to spend time outside
  • how parents can support outdoor classrooms and other efforts to get kids outside at school

Our moms also weigh in on recent online posts, including:
