It is true that parents, guardians, and also older siblings if any, have a huge role to play when it comes to kids embracing outdoor activities and not just video games and being glued to screens.

Many kids spend a lot of time on electronics because that is the only safe activity they have to do. There are many places where it isn't safe for kids to go outside and play without the potential of getting shot, hit by a car or kidnapped. Also if their parents are too busy on their own electronics to pay attention to their kid instead of actually doing stuff with them like going to the park, then kids also spend more time on electronics. Kids copy what they see adults do and may not have non-electronic things to do inside the house to keep them occupied.

I know kids who like to read outside. I feel children should spend more time actually 'in' the world around them, rather than disconnected from it by the virtual world of electronics. It's ok to use electronics. In fact, it's important to know how the be digitally efficient in today's world, but at the same time know when to shut them off. Great discussion!
