Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature Deficit Disorder
As children’s connections to nature diminish, and the social, psychological, and spiritual implications become apparent. Author Richard Louv points out how nature can offer powerful therapy for depression, obesity, and attention-deficit disorder. Environment-based education dramatically improves standardized test scores and grade-point averages, stimulates creativity, and develops skills in problem solving, critical thinking, and decision making. In Last Child in the Woods, we are shown an alternative future, one in which parents help their kids experience the natural world more deeply. This updated edition offers empowering case studies along with 35 key points to make during discussions with others.
