It seems today’s society is becoming totally apathetic to the world around them. Unfortunately too many children are more concerned with playing the latest video game and don’t really pay much attention to the environment around them. It may seem hard to get your children to show an interest in the world around them, but you can get them to care if you start early and take small steps. You may not make a difference overnight, but you may just make a difference in the future of the planet. READ More on Raising Kids That Are Eco Friendly

Learning to play has two more stages which can extend into six years of age (See previous article "Teaching Kids to Share").
1, Sharing may begin in this stage of associative play. With associate play, children engage in separate activities but can exchange toys or explore each other’s area. Sometimes it appears as if kids are dancing around one another, exploring the environment. Curiosity and budding self-awareness motivate this activity, not sharing. However, parents may see it as the first stages of sharing before toys exchange hands. READ More on Sharing And Growing As A Preschooler

If only parenting were just the way we imagine it before ever having kids! “My kids will never do that,” we say when we see a two-year-old melting down in the grocery store or a twelve-year-old snapping at his mother. We envision cuddly stories before peaceful and calm bedtimes, fun romps at the playground with everyone obediently coming when it is time to go, and no burping contests at the dinner table (especially with your delicate daughter as the uncontested winner). Then reality intervenes in the form of loud, messy, dirty children who have (gulp) minds of their own. And we parents have to give up our dreams of perfect children (how fun would they be, anyway?) and start on the sometimes exhausting but ultimately fulfilling process of imposing discipline on our youngsters so they can evolve into caring, responsible, self-disciplined adults.

Their 2-year-old boy has the scoop on heavy equipment – from pumpers to tractors.
The kids have gone to bed. We had a very peaceful and beautiful Christmas day. I hope everyone else had a great Christmas too. Before going to sleep myself I was thinking of the funny things that happen with kids and animals. I remembered a video clip I found on youtube that really made me laugh. Now don't try any of this at home!! Enjoy.
