Experiences in and with nature are vital to child development, to cultivating a sense of place, of the world, and of self.

21ST CENTURY TEACHING & PARENTING

Balancing the Juggling Act

Modern life with children is overwhelming, to say the least. In schools and in homes, children's stress levels are increasing and their connection to their families, communities, and planet is falling. Twig & Thread offers writing, consulting, and workshops for schools and for families who seek solutions for helping children navigate and challenge systems impacting their well-being, including media, screen time, race/gender identity bias, and more-- all centered around using our public, outdoor spaces as an antidote to the stress.
