With so many children spending so much time indoors today, it’s no wonder nature-deficit disorder has become a significant concern, especially with their constant connection to video game systems, tablets, and phones. But as we prioritize keeping them safe, fed and nurtured, sending them outside to enjoy what the outdoors has to offer should also be a concern.
