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.

Good day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very important to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site. Could you please get back to me on my private email(a.pierre63@yahoo.com) if you dont mind ?
Have a nice day and God bless you,
pierre

Hi Friend Bethe,
Just thought I would mention that you might want to contact your former colleagues at NWF about a typo in the "Time Out" piece you just sent me. It occurs on the top of page 6 and leaves out an important word. Here is the section that leaves a word out between "significantly students":
Outdoor Education Improves Classroom and Behavioral Outcomes

Since the late 1990s, significant academic evidence demonstrates that nature study and outdoor education programs significantly students’ overall school performance — a term that includes not just test scores but attitude and behavior as well.
