Children are like monarch butterflies. They grow, change, mature and transform in so many ways right before our very own eyes. They change when we’re not paying attention at all! Parents help their children in these processes.
Monarch butterflies are beautiful creatures of nature. They have a journey as well as a transformation. The vast majority of the North American butterfly population journeys to Mexico to overwinter. Then, they fly north in the spring after mating. They lay their eggs and the larvae feed only on milkweed. The caterpillars grow, change into a chrysalis, and transform into the butterflies they are destined to become.
