CBS reports kids spend 53 hours per week on technology & time outside has decreased 16% in past 5 years. Video here:

A recent video from CBS news reports that the time kids spend outdoors has dropped 16 percent in just the past five years. And the average American child now spends an astonishing 53 hours a week using technology, according to report. Clearly, as kids spend more time on computers and handheld devices, they spend less time outdoors. It's all a bit depressing, but this video also features refreshing sound bytes from kids spending summer at an outdoor camp in Chevy Chase, Md., instead of at home watching television. As we know, children really do love playing outdoors, and programs like this one remind us how important something as simple as mud can really be. If you need help getting the kids you know outdoors, you may want to visit our tips for family-friendly fun and getting kids outside .
