Outdoor development and our children: How are they confronting nature?

Collaborative Guest post

Between 1970 and the late 1990s, to be sent to your room as a child with no access to the outdoors was a suitable punishment for bad behaviour; now, many children would prefer to be in their bedroom than exploring the outdoors.

A place that you love? In my opinion, I definitely think so! When people think about ways to express themselves, they do not usually pick their home, but I think it is such a fabulous way to do so.
