Nature Deficit Disorder is REAL! The Question is are our Children being deprived of a Happy, Healthy, Thriving Life? Our Children are the way to a Healthy, Thriving Future!!!! Research has found that children today are missing out on having major fundamental foundations to build a healthy life because of a lack of exposure to Nature. This is being referred to as “Nature Deficit Disorder”
Three main ways our Children Learn-
1. Auditory where we hear – not just from people but from nature
2. Visual what we see – this may be from watching someone else do something, books we read, watching things on TV, Movies, Videos etc and
3. Kinesthetic by feel, touch, tactile. This can also be from what we experience from our emotional feelings – From Nature we learn feelings of peace, comfort and uniformity
For each person to thrive in their Life. It is important that they are exposed to all three areas. Nature is of vital importance as this is the very foundation for human existence. Bringing reality to a higher purpose and higher self.
