Teaching our kids sometimes involves slowing down.
Sometimes you even have to dig in the dirt.
In our busy world, how often do we slow down enough to notice, much less analyze, life’s teachable moments?
Teachable moments are a great way to spend time, grow relationships, and impart wisdom to our kids. If the pressures of life making finding time for life’s teachable moments difficult for you, then consider carving out a small block of time each day or week to carve out a small garden in your backyard.
Why? Because as we’ve discovered at Shepherd’s Hill Academy, tending a garden is full of life’s principles, lessons, responsibility and teachable moments, and even exercise. These are all components for growing and cultivating physical, spiritual, emotional, and mental health.
