Today’s children spend hours a day plugged into electronic devices or otherwise kept indoors. Many factors conspire to keep kids from the childhood their parents or grandparents experienced: hours-long stretches of free play in neighborhood parks, yards and forests.
To help, two major programs are working together, beginning in April.
More and more families, teachers and health workers are seeing how far removed today’s children are from a “normal” childhood, where kids learn about their world, learn to play with others, and work off energy by walking, climbing and playing in fields, forests and grass—or even in their own yards.
