A new survey has revealed that children don’t spend enough time in the great outdoors, despite encouragement from parents and grandparents.
Over 2,000 UK parents and grandparents took part in the ‘It’s Great Outdoors Survey’, conducted by The Spring Caravan & Camping Show (NEC Birmingham, 19th – 24th February). The survey was conducted via One Poll in January 2013 and involved responses from 2,000 parents and grandparents of children aged 2 – 10 years in the UK.
More than half (59%) think that children should spend more time outside with 81% stating that an understanding of nature and the countryside was ‘important’ or ‘very important’ to their upbringing.
This is a view shared by TV presenter and naturalist Nick Baker, who claims that today’s children are lacking the natural curiosity that stimulated their parents and grandparents to seek entertainment by exploring outdoors to the benefit of their personal development.
