ConsciousSHIFT with Julie Ann Turner featuring
SCOTT SAMPSON / HOW TO RAISE A WILD CHILD
Connecting people, and especially children,
with nature is one of the most pressing issues
of our time: in the age of Google and iPhones,
how are we to find a balance between technology
and the natural world?
Luckily, Julie Ann's ConsciousSHIFT guest
Scott Sampson - author of "HOW TO RAISE
A WILD CHILD" - shows, the very best place
to connect with nature is - wherever you
happen to live ... as he joins Julie Ann
to explore how to hook kids on nature
(even in urban environments!) and help
grown-ups become highly successful
nature mentors, as well.
American children spend just 4 to 7 minutes
a day playing outdoors — 90 percent less time
than their parents did.
Yet recent research shows that experiences
in nature are essential for healthy growth.
Regular exposure to nature can help relieve
stress, depression, and attention deficits.
It can reduce bullying, combat illness,
and boost academic scores.
Most critical of all, abundant time in nature
seems to yield long-term benefits in kids’
cognitive, emotional, and social development.
Join Julie Ann and Scott to discover how adults
can help kids fall in love with nature — enlisting
technology as an ally, taking advantage of urban
nature, and instilling a sense of place
along the way..
