October has a wonderful settledness to it. Autumn rhythms have generally fallen into place, school schedules are more familiar, and children respond to the reassuring nature of ordered days. It is during these times that we can strategically look around our homes and assess what might be introduced or improved in order to more fully give our children lifegiving environments.
This month we look specifically at our family’s health. But this encompasses much more than tossing some extra leafy greens onto the dinner table. Our children crave health in other areas, too. Let us consider how we might develop healthy habits in our children this month through making changes or introducing routines that will address their physical, emotional, and mental needs.
