How many hours in a day does a kid spend in front of some sort of screen. I-Pads, TV, Lap Tops, Cell Phones, X-Box and the list goes on. How much fun are they really having? What are they learning? Are electronics an addiction or just a habit? Probably a bad habit.
How many kids have never actually been off a trail or even on a trail? Way too many! Most states have hundreds of thousands of acres of nature available to enjoy. I understand the hesitation of wandering out into the wilderness if you aren’t experienced yourself, but there are many opportunities to enjoy Nature Centers and improved trails. Here in the West MI area we have Blandford Nature Center, Indian Trails, Hoffmaster State Park and Howard Christensen Nature Center and several others. Here is a list of the Nature Centers in Michigan: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_nature_centers_in_Michigan
