Being a parent is a great opportunity to set a good example for future generations. What children learn growing up will stay with them the rest of their lives. Whether you are a parent, thinking about taking the plunge, or an important player in a child's life, you can leave a positive and lasting impression on a child and on the environment, too. Trying to lead a greener family life doesn't have to happen overnight. Parents can take a deep breath, tackle items or concerns one by one,and then get ready to improvise. If teenagers want to experience the outdoors and learn about the environment, they can participate in any program at the neighborhood. Some programs include helping maintain facilities or teaching and leading children, while others focus on sports and adventure. My 11-year-old son joined a football club here in our place, and I allow him to join a sport's club because it is summer school vacation, and it is better to play football with the other players than staying at the Internet cafe all day.
