Let’s take time to focus on our children’s personal development and education. Whether or not we homeschool, our kid’s education is still our responsibility. We must cultivate the love of learning, regardless of their age or grade. This is possible to achieve at home, driving in the car, on an outing or even at the dinner table. It must, however be consistent.

How to raise science loving adventurous kids

So, for my own daughter to become a science loving adventurous child, I realized that it is up to me to model this behavior for her.

Recently, on behalf of Animal Jam, I was given the opportunity to do just that.  Consequently my daughter would see that the adventure starts with me!

The amazing guides from Animal Jam proved that this concept is absolutely true! Their adventurous  joy filled spirit was contagious!

They did for me what I can do for my own daughter! That is how I learned that if we want to have science loving adventurous kids we should:

  • Embrace new experiences
  • Be open to trying new things (even when it is eating puffin)
  • Seek information, notice and inspect our world
  • Discover the unexpected
  • Ask questions
  • Find joy in our moments
  • Be in awe of the beauty that surrounds us

Their example showed me to love the experience and not even worry if a horse wanted a  little nibble!
