Outside and inside space

Children 'penned in' outdoors

The amount of space children are allowed to roam, explore and play in, unsupervised, has reduced by 90% since the 1970’s. Put this against the amount of time children can roam, explore and play in virtual spaces, unsupervised and I wonder what effect this is having now and in the future.

A nationally representative study found that the average American 8-to-18 years old play video games for 13.2 hours per week.
