Do your kids spend enough time playing outside? According to researchers, probably not. In most schools and families, once classic childhood activities such as climbing trees, rolling down hills, or even recess have been replaced by “safer” ones, such as adult supervised extracurriculars, accelerated academics, and screen time.

Sign up to hear an expert discuss the importance of outdoor play, unrestrained physical movement, and their impact on our children’s brains and nervous systems. You’ll learn:

  • Why too little outdoor play may be contributing to epidemic levels of sensory processing disorders, attention deficits, and anxiety
  • What amount of outdoor play is considered optimal for healthy development and the types of activities that may be beneficial
  • How you can help your child re-engage with the wonder of the world outside
