Guest Post: Hina Nauman on Connecting With Nature

Did you ever consider getting your child connected with nature? Or to fall in love with the mysteries of nature?

As an author of the e-series, Hanna the Guardian of Nature aged for children 7 to 12 years, I aimed to make children understand their emotions and to help them, not only to heal their negative emotions but to use their energies positively by connecting themselves with the nature around them. 

This will surely help them become better mature adults in society. I believe whatever you write for children should always be humorous so that children should love their childhood and enjoy themselves being a kid. That is the reason why I focus on putting my main character as a naughty, mischievous 8-year-old girl in this series.

Nature is a gift. We must let our children feel the power of nature in our souls. Nature has the power to connect people regardless of our cultural differences. As parents, it is our responsibility to let our children understand how to stand for themselves in hard times in positive ways.

Children having narcissistic parents struggle a lot in their life. I faced the same issue of having narcissistic parents in my life and the entire time my life ended up having narcissistic relationships in my life. As a kid, seeing narcissistic parents taught you that being, treated unwell loves you. Which is not true and puts a lot of emotional damage on a child. However, I was one of the luckiest people in the world to remain sane and believe in continuous positivity in life. 

This all happened only because of one reason in my life. I was attracted to nature from my early childhood. Whenever I felt sad or low in life, I use to go out in my home garden. I would start watering plants, putting seeds for birds or enjoying the fresh air. This was actually, giving me a break to revise my life and to see things from a different angle. This helped me always to be positive in life no matter what happens.

During the Covid and recent times in my life, I saw many individuals having anxiety and depression problems in life. Then I realised how much these people lack the need to deal with the upfronts of life in their childhood. A child is always told that a family is the most important thing but there may come times in life when family do not help you in life which leaves these individual’s soul wounded. However, I believe we have to teach our children that yes, family does matter but even families are made by humans and humans are meant to make mistakes in their life till the end of their lives.

Why not consider everyone even your parents as human? Forgive them if they never listen to your emotions in life. Forgive everyone in your life always as forgiving is letting go of the hurt that hurt you. Always stay positive in life by connecting yourself with the nature around you.

I feel we must make our children connect with nature for their emotional healing in life. So that when our children grow up in life, and face anxiety, depression, loneliness or any sort of mental illness, they do not go for drugs or any other harmful remedy. Instead of this, they should be strong enough to say to themselves that they need a little break in life, so why not go for a walk in the park daily and see the birds in the sky? Alternatively, how about spending my time gardening this month to give my mind a change of vision? 

This is my motto for my series. However, the first book Born to be Naughty from this e-series Hanna the Guardian of Nature aims to make children understand diversity and fall for the main character of the book first.

This generation of children is called the social media generation. Kids these days are always demanding gadgets. This is the first experiment ever done in kid lit, where children all around the world will connect to observe the actual meaning of diversity in this world by the same internet hashtags given in the book tasks during the story. Which will help kids all around the world realise that kids everywhere in the world are the same in terms of having fun in life but there are always cultural differences everywhere in the world and we should always have acceptance for others in our life. So, till the final part of the series, children will realise that working together is fun and together they have the power to protect this nature.
