A call to nature

It seems that ever since I started reading A Country Called Childhood by Jay Griffiths, the topic of nature and children seems to be creeping more and more into our conversation. This article over at the Children & Nature Network by Richard Louv has a lot to say on the topic. It’s entitled “The Criminalization of Natural Play“.

There is also this article over at Treehugger entitled “Complaint about naked 4-year-old prompts visit from police by Katherine Martinko. As Richard Louv states, hopefully it will start a national dialogue on nature and children.
