Nature play is essential

My friend and I were enjoying watching our kids walk through the tall grass and a lady said “just be careful they may cut their hands on the grass. It’s sharp!” I was speechless!!! It’s not the ladies fault by any means but she clearly hasn’t walked through tall grass as it is not sharp. It got me thinking of how disconnected from nature our society is to think grass is painful and concrete is safe. I will continue to inspire parents to get there kids outside by simplifying their lives so they have more time for nature. #mindfulminimalistmama
