Special screening of Mother Nature’s Child, a film that explores nature’s powerful role in children’s health and development through the experience of toddlers, children in middle childhood and adolescents. The effects of “nature deficit disorder” are now being noted across the country in epidemics of child obesity, attention disorders, and depression. Mother Nature’s Child asks the questions: Why do children need unstructured time outside? What is the place of risk-taking in healthy child development? How is play a form of learning? Why are teachers resistant to taking students outside? How can city kids connect with nature? What does it mean to educate the ‘whole’ child? Sunday, April 22 at 3 p.m. in the Respect Our Earth Theater.
