how does your garden grow
I found this excerpt from a local garden website. I thought it was interesting in how it relates to both gardening and parenting.
Learning By Doing
“Most of the gardening classes… have hands-on-learning opportunities and requirements. For most beginning gardeners this is not enough. One of the best ways to learn gardening is to join a community garden that works at a convenient time in a location near you. There are more than 150 in the Houston area stretching from Galveston to Magnolia. Many are at schools. You can help start a community garden so that your community can learn. When you garden with others, you can learn from them. Gardening is rewarding, and the more you know the more rewarding it gets.”
Watching other parents at work can often give you good ideas to implement in your own home. Some may work well with your own kids, some may not, but it sure helps seeing other parents raising their kids. If nothing else, at least we know we are not alone in our struggles.
