Kids And Nature

As a kid I loved being in nature. Growing up in an urban area of NJ I did not have as many nature experiences as kids in the suburbs. Kids these days don't get out enough and some people think it might be linked to child obesity and behavior problems. I think it might have a little to do with it. Nature helps because it gives the mind a chance to rest and it also shows children that there is more to life than their home town. What do you think?

Especially with the nice weather we've been having, it's a great time to take the family out for picnic, do a little bit of trail hiking, or even camping.

I really don't consider kids being "active" playing Wii as a good substitute for it :)
