Remember how kids used to play outside every day, running thorough the neighborhood until sunset? In this episode of EcoSense for Living we explore "nature deficit disorder," a term coined by Richard Louv (author, Last Child in the Woods), to describe the physical, mental, and emotional effects that children suffer when they lose contact with nature. Richard pinpoints how we came to be a nation separated from the natural world and how we can reverse it. We'll also hike with psychologist, Dr. David... [see more] Busch, who uses nature therapy to help kids with ADD and ADHD. Then we'll experience how urban communities reconnect kids to nature through gardening, beekeeping, and creating safe untamed places where kids can still run wild. Find out how you can reconnect kids to their natural roots in your part of the world.
