GETTING THE MESSAGE OUT
Outdoors and Nature
Parenting today . . .
Most kids plug into the world of television long before they enter school. TV and other electronic media can get in the way of exploring, playing, and interacting with parents and others, which encourages learning and healthy physical and social development. As kids get older, too much screen time can interfere with activities such as being physically active, reading, doing homework, playing with friends, and spending time with family.
Of course, TV in moderation can be a good thing: Pre-schoolers can get help learning the alphabet on public television, post primary kids can learn about wildlife on nature shows, and young people and parents can keep up with current events on the evening news.
No doubt about it — TV can be an excellent educator and entertainer. But despite its advantages, too much television can be detrimental
. . . real outdoor field trips with parents offer better overall learning and healthy environments rather than virtual all the time!
