Worried About Your Child Playing Outdoors? Never Fear, ‘Nature Play’ Is Here!
At present, reports say that there are many children who are suffering from obesity and myopia due to lack of outdoor activities. Although the parents want their children to play outdoors rather than glued to a screen, some parents are limiting their children’s freedom to play outside, because of potential dangers outside the safety of home. In order to change this mindset, the experimental play program of Nature Play was established to encourage free-range kids in communities.
The Daily was joined by Shirley Wyver in the studio, Senior Lecturer in Child Development to talk about the parents who are worried about their children participating in outdoor activities.
