Children in Nature

04/22/2009 | 26m 52s

We explore "Nature Deficit Disorder," a term coined by Richard Louv, author of" Last Child in the Woods" about the effects children suffer when they lose contact with nature. A psychologist uses nature therapy to help kids with ADD and ADHD. See how urban communities reconnect kids to nature through gardening, beekeeping, and creating safe untamed places where kids can still run wild.
