Children & Outdoors

 My children grew up outdoors. We live in a rural area, and neighbors have horses and goats, and I have chickens. I have a large garden.
So when a recent study showed that children have a powerful sense of connection with spirit, the earth, and transcendence when they spend time outdoors, I was gratified. It is great to see you have been on the right path.
Go to my blog here and read about this study.
Ask yourself: Are we facilitating children being outdoors? Are we encouraging them to spend time in nature? Even going to local parks? 
Or do we "sign off" so to speak on the poor children spending hours in front of TV and playing video games?
