Monday thought of the week: loosen up

A thought:

Loosen up and find some hands-on nature experiences for the kids. Don’t worry so much about the dirt and scrapes. Clothes and bodies can be washed; cuts heal. Nature connection is a contact sport, and nature can take it.

– Scott Sampson, in Amy Joyce, “Four ways to combat the winter blahs,” The Washington Post (February 4, 205). Check out Sampson’s blog The Whirlpool of Life, follow him on Twitter at @DrScottSampson, or like his Facebook page, Dr. Scott Sampson. His forthcoming book How to Raise a Wild Child: The Art and Science of Falling in Love with Nature will be out in March.
