Last Child in the Woods Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder

Richard Louv

Algonquin Books. Paperback. New. Paperback. 390 pages. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.4in. x 1.0in.I like to play indoors better cause thats where all the electrical outlets are, reports a fourth-grader. Never before in history have children been so plugged inand so out of touch with the natural world. In this groundbreaking new work, child advocacy expert Richard Louv directly links the lack of nature in the lives of todays wired generationhe calls it nature deficitto some of the most disturbing childhood trends, such as rises in obesity, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), and depression. Some startling facts: By the 1990s the radius around the home where children were allowed to roam on their own had shrunk to a ninth of what it had been in 1970. Today, average eight-year-olds are better able to identify cartoon characters than native species, such as beetles and oak trees, in their own community. The rate at which doctors prescribe antidepressants to children has doubled in the last five years, and recent studies show that too much computer use spells trouble for the developing mind. Nature-deficit disorder is not a medical condition; it is a description of the human costs of alienation from nature. This alienation damages children and shapes adults, families, and communities. There are solutions, though, and theyre right in our own backyards. Last child in the Woods is the first book to bring together cutting-edge research showing that direct exposure to nature is essential for healthy childhood developmentphysical, emotional, and spiritual. Whats more, nature is a potent therapy for depression, obesity, and ADD. Environment-based education dramatically improves standardized test scores and grade point averages and develops skills in problem solving, critical thinking, and decision making. Even creativity is stimulated by childhood experiences in nature. Yet sending kids outside to play is increasingly difficult. Computers, television, and video games compete for their time, of course, but its also our fears of traffic, strangers, even virus-carrying mosquitoesfears the media exploitthat keep children indoors. Meanwhile, schools assign more and more homework, and there is less and less access to natural areas. Parents have the power to ensure that their daughter or son will not be the last child in the woods, and this book is the first step toward that nature-child reunion. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
