15th July 2011. Strange, we complain about kids being inside the house all day getting tenosynovitus ,obesity and worse, from sitting around all day playing with video devices and computers, yet what do we do to encourage them otherwise. We chop down all the climbing trees and replace them with ugly buildings and concrete; we make the play areas so puerile and sanitized, its not a challenge for a two year old; we make the parks so rare its a days drive to get there; we make the roads so dangerous with the great god car its unsafe to ride a bike; we flood the streets with drunks after dark; we allow the fat purveyors to fill their minds and stomachs by allowing inappropriate advertising; we… So ! dont blame the kids !!
