Many Kids Get No Outdoor Play

Only 51% of preschool children are taken outdoors to play at least once a day by a parent, a large U.S. study has revealed. Girls were less likely than boys to get outside regularly.  “…parents may take their children outdoors to view God in nature. They can be pointed to the blooming flowers and the opening buds, the lofty trees and beautiful spires of grass, and taught that God made all these…” (Child Guidance, p. 19)
