A recent article by Day Nursaries (UK) says that a lack of outdoor adventures and too much electronic screen time is damaging children’s health. The article begins:
“By spending more than 86 hours of the summer holidays staring at electronic devices, children are missing out on traditional outdoor activities, according to a new study published by Go Ape, an outdoor adventure facility.
The study surveyed 2,000 British parents and found that the average child spends at least two hours and four minutes every day gawking at tablet devices, playing computer games and watching television, which can have a negative impact on their physical health, imagination and social interactions.”
Probably just like their parents.
