There’s no doubt about it—raising your kids in a city is a great way ensure that you’re raising cultured, worldly kids. Access to things, such as art, entertainment, history, and a diversity in just about everything from culture to fashion to food is a great advantage, for one. Exposing your kids to real world situations at an early age can help them later on in life. But is all of that immersion in daily city life too much stimulation?
Children are great at reminding us how to notice and appreciate the simple things. How to lighten up, live in the moment, and have fun. Getting outdoors with kids is just as important for us as it is for them.
