Be kind to mother nature, and she’ll let you keep your kids.

We live at a time when the world is very concerned about environmental health and safety. Every day, we read about oil spills, global warming, nuclear energy, endangered species and pandemics. Because these are such pressing issues, they are also well-known to the courts. They should also be known to your children as well.

Kids should be taught about the virtues of recycling, about protecting their environment, about safeguarding the ecosystem of the lake and the marshes at the local park. They should be taught to avoid wasting electricity, oil and gas, and to learn about alternative sources of energy such as solar power.

Educating children about the environment can have many positive ripple effects. Your kids will learn how the environment influences allergies, how it affects asthma sufferers, how it impacts upon food supplies, and how it affects birds, fish and other animals.

A parent who develops environmental sensitivity in his or her children is likely to be viewed by the courts as a very earnest parent – one who is concerned about teaching kids to grow up to be responsible health-conscious and safety-conscious adults. Besides the educational benefits that may flow from learning about the environment, teaching environmental responsibility to children builds character and strengthens the parent-child bond.
