The children of today are the adults of tomorrow, therefore, teaching them from childhood to care for and respect the environment will turn them into people aware of the dangers that the misuse of natural resources entails.
The care of the environment is of such importance that we can describe it as a value, it is an action that must permeate people since childhood, because it constitutes a vital prevention mechanism for all.
However, the manner in which it is infused can sometimes be unattractive to children. Sermons or compulsory practices can cause boredom in children; that is why it is recommended that methods designed for children be implemented, that are useful and fun at the same time.
When children live away from contact with nature, they usually manifest a deficit disorder of nature, which manifests obesity, stress, learning disorders, hyperactivity, fatigue or depression. In contrast children who are in contact with nature get sick less, have better concentration, more skills and more inner peace.
Being in contact with nature also feel less negative emotions, and children are more grateful, there are studies that show that grateful people beat their hearts better because gratitude releases endorphins that regulate blood pressure.
Knowing nature offers the opportunity to develop respect, as well as skills and competence for the future, since this contact provides experience of freedom, responsibility, creativity and initiative.
