June: Resolve to Take Daily Walks
Walking is great for your health, but that's beside the point. Walking with your children, especially at their glacial pace, gives you a chance to talk or enjoy the quiet together. There are 17 trees between my house and the playground closest to us. I only know that because my 2-year-old son made me count them all as we meandered to the playground. Children see the world in an entirely different way than adults, and so often, we get focused on the destination that we don't stop to appreciate the journey. Slow your pace, talk, and enjoy these moments where your child examines every sidewalk crack and ladybug.
