Description

Childhood is finite at just shy of 9.5 million minutes. We only get one shot at it. One of the biggest decisions we make is how we will use that time. Research has confirmed time and time again that what children are naturally and unabashedly drawn to, unrestricted outside play, contributes extensively to every area of childhood development. The importance here cannot be understated. Every year we aim to match nature time with the average amount of American kid screen time (which is currently 1200 hours per year). Have a goal. Track your time outside. Take back childhood. Inspire others.

This is a pivotal episode of the 1000 Hours Outside Podcast. Renowned social psychologist Jonathan Haidt joins us to dissect the seismic shifts in childhood experiences over recent decades. Delving into the heart of the matter, Jonathan and Ginny explore the transformation of childhood from 2010 to 2015, pinpointing the advent of Gen Z, the first cohort to navigate adolescence with the omnipresence of smartphones. With piercing insights, Haidt illuminates how this digital era ushered in an era of unparalleled mental health challenges among youth. He reveals the alarming rise in anxiety and depression, particularly pronounced among adolescent girls, and attributes it in part to the pervasive culture of "safetyism," where children are shielded from physical risks but exposed to unprecedented psychological perils online. Drawing from historical contexts, Haidt paints a vivid picture of a bygone era where children roamed freely, fostering crucial social and emotional skills through unstructured play. However, the dawn of intensive parenting and the allure of digital devices reshaped the landscape, depriving children of vital developmental experiences. Amidst these revelations, Haidt advocates for collective action, proposing transformative norms to reclaim childhood. From delaying smartphone access until high school to fostering phone-free school environments, he outlines a blueprint for restoring the essence of childhood and nurturing resilient, self-sufficient individuals. With urgency and conviction, Haidt and Yurich challenge societal norms, urging parents to prioritize real-world experiences over digital distractions. As they navigate the complex terrain of modern parenting, they underscore the imperative of fostering independence, fostering social bonds, and embracing the inherent risks of childhood—a clarion call for a generation at the precipice of profound change. ** Purchase your copy of The Anxious Generation here >> https://amzn.to/3TRkBbY Learn more about The Anxious Generation here >> www.anxiousgeneration.com Find Jonathan's Substack here >> www.afterbabel.com ** Download your free 1000 Hours Outside tracker here >> https://www.1000hoursoutside.com/trackers Find everything you need to kick off your 1000 Hours Outside Journey here >> https://www.1000hoursoutside.com/blog/allthethings Order of copy of Ginny's newest book, Until the Streetlights Come On here >> https://amzn.to/3RXjBlN Learn more about your ad choices.

I love this podcast, but this episode they started doing cutesy sound effectsv every couple sentences. I lasted five minutes before I had to change it!

I love this podcast! It's so encouraging, not just to be outside (obviously it is that!) but just to cherish the time you're given with your children and to make each moment intentional ♥️ we've not yet hit 1000 hrs in a year (850 was our closest last year!), but this encourages us to keep getting out there and keep making memories!

Ginny is real and relatable (I'm also a homeschool mama to 5), and absolutely I love all the authors she interviews! It fuels me with essential reminders and new inspiration needed to live an intentional well rounded life!

One of the best podcasts out. It has changed me and challenged me as a parent and a person. So many great interviews and questions being asked. Ginny is a great interviewee. I love her thoughtful and on point questions. She really has a pulse for what parents are looking for.

I enjoyed those poems and think it's really neat that Rachel included them in her book! Showcasing lesser known poets! 😊
