Monday thought of the week: kids needs nature, not Facebook

A thought:

Wringing our hands (while trying to type on a computer) about the info-blitzkrieg won’t help. It’s not going to stop. Instead, we need to find a cost-effective balancing agent. One source is right outside the door. The more high-tech our society becomes, the more we need nature. In a virtual age, it’s time to reconnect our children (and ourselves) to life.

– Richard Louv, in response to Facebook planning to open up the social media website to children under 13 years of age, “Opinion: Kids need nature, not Facebook,” (June 12, 2012)
