When you are a parent, what is it that you are trying to teach your child about you? Is it the love of your family and your commitment to their well being? Or is it just an emphasis on doing your part as a caring parent to make sure your child has everything they need? Or is it… intolerance for the very idea of using pesticides, insecticides, and other hazardous chemicals? Or perhaps your only interest in your children being outdoors?
No matter how you define your parenting style, it should be common ground that you share. Unfortunately, not every parent comes close to sharing these essential values. One of the most important things that we can all learn to do is to recognize that we all have a responsibility to care for the earth. And while there are some who seem more than willing to pollute the earth with harmful products and disregard the damage they are doing, there are also many who only minimally care and spend the bare minimum when it comes to the environment.
The point is, we need to start learning and making a difference for the children. When you think about it, would it not be better for all of us to start caring for our children before they are even born, as children are able to affect so many aspects of our lives as they grow up. As a child goes through puberty, they begin to experience physical changes as hormones are released, ones that greatly affect the production of growth hormones and the way they look and feel. Also, the earlier a child experiences puberty, the more likely it is that they will engage in physical activities like sports, joining clubs, and taking part in different types of physical education classes.
All of these things play a vital role in developing our children’s skills and abilities in all aspects of learning. Yet, if you are like most parents, you are probably finding that you are simply unable to keep up. This is not unusual, as the process of learning itself can be very difficult and requires a lot of effort on your child’s behalf. Therefore, you have a responsibility to do what you can to facilitate this learning process and to do so in the safest and most healthy way possible.
One thing parents can do to help make the learning process easier is to start planning for their children’s future. This should involve them in the process of creating a family budget. It should also entail them discussing the environmental impact of products that they plan to purchase with their children, and asking their advice regarding how their children can be protected from the effects of environmental toxins.
In addition, you should also consider getting your child involved in the learning and teaching of ecology. Though we are now in the age of technology, it is still best to get them into nature based projects, like going bird watching or taking a hiking trip. By doing so, your children will learn about environmental issues and sustainability. At the same time, they will also learn about nature, which is essential to their growing up.
An eco-conscious parent also has to make sure that their child practices good hygiene. This does not only relate to their personal hygiene, but also to the care of other living creatures in the environment. For instance, you should ask your child to wash their hands frequently after using the bathroom. You should also make sure that they are receiving enough clean water to drink. Another thing to do is to build water storage tanks, which you can refill with rainwater, to save yourself from paying for expensive water supplies.
Another thing that these parents need to do is to monitor the air around their home. There may be a lot of pollutants in the air, which can be detrimental to the health of your child. To help prevent illnesses caused by environmental toxins, you should install an exhaust ventilation system. However, if you feel that it would be uneconomical for you to install such a system, you should at least insulate your home from the harmful effects of environmental toxins. Your child will thank you for it at a later date, when he or she suffers from allergies, breathing problems, or cancer as a result of breathing in environmental toxins. By being an eco-concious parent, you will be helping your child to lead a healthy and fulfilling life.
