Appreciation of Nature. How often do kids these days get out in the fresh air and enjoy the great outdoors? Not often enough, I think we can all agree!
So grab your boots, put on some sunscreen, and head outside. For a few hours in nature can help you appreciate the beauty of our great world, and it will require a bit of exercise as well. Plus, speaking of nature .
Unplugging from Technology. You can’t appreciate nature and have a truly relaxing day if you’re constantly checking Facebook or playing games on your iPad. Getting children away from their computers and video games once in a while will help them see that you don’t have to stare at a screen to have fun.
Keep it simple. You don’t have to teach your child about fishing techniques, equipment, and etiquette straightaway. If all goes well, you’ll have many moments down the road to improve your child’s knowledge of fishing. This first time, answer their questions and offer up some insight, but don’t go overboard.
There’s a first time for everything. Some firsts are forgettable and unremarkable (the first time you ate a sandwich, the first time time you brushed your teeth, or singing), but others are monumental and could have a profound impact on your future. So you should have the time for fishing with your kid.
