PARENTING TIP OF THE MONTH - Parenting Tip 140: As the buds begin to sprout and the weather allows us to head outdoors more often, take some time to discuss the importance of God’s created world with your children. Point out the connectedness of each of us to nature and our dependence on it to survive. Help them understand that every person is tasked with being a steward of God’s world. Explain how we can each participate in caring for nature and remind them that when we each do our part, nature thrives and so do we. From: Family Ministry Office; 905- 528-7988 ext. 2250.
