Conserving energy is both an activity and a topic of discussion that is important for not only adults but children as well. Kids who learn about saving electricity often develop habits that will stay with them for a lifetime. Parents can teach kids about using less electricity by starting out with simple things like instructing them to turn off the lights when they leave a room. Kids also can be encouraged to save energy by spending more time playing outside instead of watching television or playing video games. Of course, parents must teach children by example as well. Parents can lead the way by unplugging electronic devices and appliances such as televisions, DVD players, and video game consoles so they don't continue to draw power when they're not in use.
