How to Rough It with Kids June 06, 2013 10:09

I have always loved camping. It's something I did as a kid with my family, with friends as a teenager and college student, and with my husband in our early days together. And while becoming a mom has changed my lifestyle in many ways, camping was one area where we didn't slow down a bit.

We've been camping with our children since my oldest was just a babe, and have learned a few things along the way to make it just a little easier and more enjoyable. There's no doubt that camping with babes and kids is much more work than when it's a group of adults, but it really can be just as fun. 

Today, Natural Parents Network is featuring a post from me sharing some of my suggestions for how to tackle camping with your little ones in tow. Check my article, along with a ton of great natural parenting resources, here.

And here's a cute pic of my little guy camping last summer to remind you that to really rough it, you can't be afraid to get a little dirty!
