I did not make this video…but I like it!! It is a brief snapshot summary of Richard Louv’s book “Last Child In The Woods” in which Louv coins the term “Nature Deficit Disorder”. NDD is NOT a medically diagnosed disorder; it is a phenomenon that is becoming increasingly problematic due to the constant exposure to technology and not enough time spent outside. As a result, children are experiencing higher levels of stress, anxiety, depression and aggression. Check out the video and do some further research-it will inspire you to get you and your kids back outdoors!
