I'm sharing my experience of starting a small vegetable garden with my children. It's not only an educational and fun activity, but also a great way to spend quality time together.
I've always believed that nature plays a vital role in our lives, especially for our children. In a world where everything is readily available at the store, it's easy for kids to lose touch with where their food comes from. That's why I decided to start a small vegetable garden in our backyard. It was a simple idea, but one that promised to be a great way to connect with my children and teach them valuable lessons about nature and responsibility.
As a parent, I know how challenging it can be to see our children experience strong emotions.

These emotions can trigger our own emotional reactions, leaving us feeling lost about the best way to respond.
