Children walking in the woods.

We're joined by the man who coined the term "nature deficit disorder." Richard Louv is the author of Last Child in the Woods: Saving our Children from Nature Deficit Disorder. He works to educate others about the importance of getting kids outside and into nature and away from the TV. We'll talk about the reasons behind the trend that has driven children out of the woods and fields and how to overcome this trend.
