Today more than ever before, we as parents have a responsibility to look out for our children’s health. Most kids today spend more time indoors than ever before and it has a negative effect on their health. When we grew up there was no social media or even lots of great programs on television. As children, we spent most of our time outside enjoying nature, having adventures, learning and experiencing the world at first hand. Many of us today, as parents, recognize that our children are growing up in a completely different reality, so what can we do about it as parents? The obvious answer would be to close all social media, TVs and other distractions and go outside…..not very easy right? In my office, I take care of lots of children that spend hours every day on social media and other forms of screens. These children’s health is not at full potential and it’s obvious in their sensory integration abilities, processing, behavior and yes immune system. But chiropractic care is just one part of their care plan, they need to go back to nature and spend more time out side. Tinkergarten is a wonderful resource that you and your child can enjoy. Our almost two year old son loves his outdoor classes with Kelly Young Silverman from Tinkergarten. Take a few minutes and watch this short video to hear Kelly explain about outdoor education and Tinkergarten.
