Here’s a good anecdote for JUST how little time kids today spend playing outside: A new survey found a lot of kids spend less time outside on an average day than PRISON INMATES.

One in three kids between five and 12 years old play outside for around 30 minutes. Meanwhile, the U.N. guidelines require that prisoners get at least one hour a day outdoors.
