We’ve Locked Ourselves in a Hothouse

Two articles I’ve read this week speak powerfully to two related issues: Reclaiming and teaching to the upcoming generations both inner fortitude and a healthy level of detachment from the screens to which we devote so much of our time.
From the second article:
“Louv tells of interviewing thousands of children in the course of previous research. At one point, he received this candid comment from a fourth-grade boy in San Diego: “I like to play indoors better, ’cause that’s where all the electrical outlets are.’”
