I was very glad to be able to show Sprite some websites and articles in the local paper about effort to clean up, preserve and revitalize the environment. And there were activities which encouraged participation of youngsters.
We read about Clean Up Australia Day which will be held on Sunday 7 March 2010 with Schools Clean up Day on Friday 15 March 2010 http://www.cleanup.org.au/au/
But I also realized that we would have to work on building Sprite’s resilience as she was bound to encounter more difficulties and disappointments.
And once again it was Marjie Braun Knudsen (author of BRAVE See https://spritessite.wordpress.com/2009/10/08/the-third-s-i-p-p-for-physical-and-practical-part-3/ ) who supplied help with a blog entry about resilience- Helping Your Kids and Teens Survive which she guest wrote for Omamas blog.
“How to help your child develop resiliency against life’s slings and arrows”
