We must cultivate a need for wild things in our children’s hearts. A walk in the quiet woods, a look at the stars, observing animals will do so much for their souls. Even a small amount of time spent outdoors with them will be immensely beneficial. Remember, the best way to get a child to go outside is to go with them.
