Children seem to have an innate need to nurture living things. Sometimes its easy to satisfy that need by dedicating a sunny corner of the yard to growing a tomato or carrot crop.

.

But growing plants indoors, whether due to inhospitable weather or lack of space, is another, often overlooked option.

.

Plants bring a house to life, says Sharon Lovejoy, an author-illustrator who enjoys connecting children with nature. Having a green, growing thing to tend is a wonderful relationship for a child. Lovejoy is the author of Roots, Shoots, Buckets & Boots: Gardening Together With Children and Camp Granny.

.

Houseplants offer some advantages over garden beds. Living in close proximity to plants allows children to play an even greater role in their care, as well as to observe things that might go unnoticed in an outdoor setting, where interactions are more sporadic. Plants might be kept in a childs room, too, as long as theres sufficient light.

.

Caring for a houseplant can teach life lessons, says Randy Seagraves, curriculum director for the International Junior Master Gardener Program and extension program specialist with Texas A&M AgrilLife Extension Service. Children learn how to consider the needs of another living thing and the consequences if you dont. Another possible plus for parents: Houseplants come without the full-scale responsibility of a pet.

.

Growing something teaches kids the concept of delayed gratification, Seagraves adds.
