    3 Skills Children Learn When Exposed to Outdoor Play
    The importance of outdoor play has been gaining a lot of adherents lately. Richard Louv, a journalist, and co-author of Children & Nature Network was the first to coin the term ¨nature-deficit disorder.¨ He explains that this deficit ¨contributes to a diminished use of the senses, attention difficulties, conditions of obesity, and higher rates of emotional and physical illnesses.¨ Angela Hanscom, a pediatric occupational therapist and founder of TimberNook, is a fierce advocate for nature-based play.

    Making time for kids? Study says quality trumps quantity.
    Do parents, especially mothers, spend enough time with their children? Though American parents are with their children more than any parents in the world, many feel guilty because they don't believe it's enough. That's because there's a widespread cultural assumption that the time parents, particularly mothers, spend with children is key to ensuring a bright future.
