For those who left comments about how horrible it is to have to give your child things to do outside, please remember that not all kids enjoy going outdoors, even if they don't live in a tech filled house. I grew up on a farm and loved spending time outside doing anything and everything. However, my sister would much rather just stay inside, read, and listen to music, even with all the fun that awaited outside. When I was young I just couldn't understand. Now I do. We are all human which means we are all different. We enjoy different things. My husband and I farm, and our young son loves going outside just like my husband and me. However our daughter is perfectly happy to play quietly in her room by herself. It's a challenge for us to get her outside. Please be respectful of us parents who are trying to encourage our kids to enjoy the outdoors, even though its not their cup of tea.
