Join guest host Chris Clackum for a discussion about Nature Deficit Disorder. This is what happens to young people when they become disconnected from their natural world. This lack of exposure to nature contributes to disturbing childhood trends including depression, attention disorders and a rise in obesity. Between the “electronics” generation’s attachment to ipods, computers and video games and their parents’ paranoia about letting their kids play outside alone or venture too far from the house is creating kids who are becoming increasingly removed and out-of-touch with the natural environment.
