Looking for a place to go explore with the kids? You should be. Especially if your kids are like most and watch a whopping 40 plus hours a week of television. That’s a full time job!
We struggle with this too in our house even though we don’t have cable the girls still watch TV via NetFlix which I’m thinking of dropping simply because of the gravitational force it exhibits.
While driving home from visiting family we passed a billboard with Discover the Forest on it. The idea is simple: get kids outside more. The piles of evidence show how much better off children are when they are outside engaged in nature.
Here is the link http://www.discovertheforest.org/. You can look up areas to visit and checkout the partner programs to help you rediscover the fun of being out in nature and help your kids establish a love of nature–something both of you can enjoy for a lifetime.
