Walk a lot


A dominant academic milieu should be walking. When walking, children can talk. They can think. They can see the world around them at the right scale (better than biking or driving).

And when walking routinely, children can see the slight changes (a new car, a new roof, new Spring growth or Fall colors, a new sale at a shop, a new family member moving in) that herald real milestones or interesting decisions.


  1. So true! When we walk with our son, its amazing how discussions flow more naturally. We've had so many great conversations while hiking. He seems to open up more verbally while moving.

  2. Or driving...I had my best conversations with my son on our way to family events a long distance away!
