As the weather turns warmer and the days are longer, many parents are looking forward to spending more quality time with the family. A great place to start is by taking your kids outdoors — a lot. As the parent of a 6-year old and a 1-year-old, I think a lot about how our family can provide experiences that help them reach their potential. As the head of the National Wildlife Federation, I am also focused on where children spend their time, and how it impacts their lives.
"Kids Do Not Spend Nearly Enough Time Outside. Here’s How (And Why) to Change That." is from the May 29, 2018 Lifestyle section of The Washington Post. It was written by Collin O'Mara and narrated by Sam Scholl.
