THE IMPORTANCE OF ENVIRONMENTAL EXPOSURE TO DEVELOPING MINDS Archive HOME > THE IMPORTANCE OF ENVIRONMENTAL EXPOSURE TO DEVELOPING MINDS

As a pre-school child, I was always eager to be outside, “helping” my parents wherever I could. I would watch as my mum and dad used to potter in the garden for hours at a time. Always having plenty decisions to make. Where in the garden should they place the newly bought plants? How deep should my dad dig the hole? The list is endless. Looking back, I now realize the patience they had, allowing me to “help”, the accommodations they would make so I would feel like a big girl with responsibilities for our garden to look beautiful.
