My Wishes for Today's Kids...

Today I wrote a blog post that I would love to share. While it's about children and nature, it's also about a whole lot more.“Childhood is the fiery furnace in which we are melted down to essentials and that essential shaped for good.” ~ Katherine Anne PorterAs a writer, and I hope, a thought-leader on childhood issues, I spend a lot of time speaking to parents, educators, and other grown-ups.
