"Children should be allowed to go barefoot in the dirt, play in the dirt, and not have to wash their hands when they come in to eat'
A nicely done article reiterating what our first naturopath told us years ago: every child should eat a pound of dirt in his/her lifetime. Dirt is GOOD for us. And the kicker, not only are there beneficial bacteria, viruses and yeasts--there are also beneficial worms! Yay for relaxed parenting: saves time, avoids hassles, grows healthy kids.
