Chapters 1-4

Basically the first 4 chapters was saying that children nowadays are becoming more distance from nature unlike their parents whose playground was nature. They were allowed to run free, build treehouse a to play with and other things that the kids now can’t do due to laws. It’s suppose to be for the safety but how can imagination be dangerous to kids and nature. For thousands of years they were able to coexist and they were fine. Yet what is also causing the nature deficit disorder is the amount of nature that is slowly decreasing. We’ve made the kids become disconnected. They say kids are missing out of the adventure and imagination but how can that be when they were never introduced to it in the first place. Some studies show that kids being able to go and play outside rather than inside reduces the symptoms of ADHD.  Being with nature can be a way for kids to get away and calm themselves or just be by themselves. Even as a kid you can have frustrations that you want to get away from for a little bit. That is what going outside involved with nature does to kids.   Studies have shown that even in adults, being with nature is therapeutic. Being in outside is different than being in nature with uneven ground, tons of trees ad rocks. The unevenness of nature has better positive effects like better balance and agility. We need to act now on the available knowledge of the healing powers of nature to humans.
