Children and adults need to get away from the everpresent electronic screens and get outside. Find a new park to explore or grab the bikes and peddle through the neighborhood. Why should we get outside with our families? We are all suffering from Nature Deficit Disorder.
My friend and former colleague Jenny Morgan has written a wonderful song entitled "Nature Needs Kids and Kids Need Nature" that is featured in the short video Leave No Child Inside www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAYc5Z8l2_c.
Give yourself the gift of 10 minutes and watch this video-- you'll be inspired and ready to get outside with your kids.
