I just completed this video last night at 3 am, I used some old stock footage of mine and some new footage shot earlier that day.
The young lad in the short film is my son, this video came out of frustration of having a hard time keeping him entertained out in the woods, for me it wasn't hard its just what we did.

Its a troubling trend with the way children are now so obsessed with electronics, its to the point we will have an entire generation children who don't know how important nature is to us.

Video description: Video starts of with scenic nature then pans to child with head down uninterested in all the nature, then goes on to text about the need to unplug your child.

Hope you all enjoy this Like & subscribe, more to come.
Thank you.

I agree that the average kid doesn't

climb trees as much as kids in 1980
build tree forts "
play war outside "
skin their knees "
play tag "
want to sleep in a tent "

Too many parents let the game systems be the kids childhood. This is a disservice to the kids, WE KNOW BETTER!

Wonderful vid! Loved the nature scenes and the frog was so cute! I didn't grow up in a world full of electronic devices. I played outside all the time and embraced nature and used my imagination and creativity.

Be fore warned for the One who points out the irony here. I'd suspect a few generations from now most folks will have Mickey Mouse thumbs, which will be great for hitching a ride because nobody will work and nobody will be able to own/operate a car. You see it already in major sports, how many guys from overseas were drafted this past week? Baseball has turned Latin, but not American football, not yet. What does this say about the work ethic in general?

But what do I know? I just came off the lake after a morning spent bass fishing and have the batteries charging in the boat to maybe hit it again this evening and I gave up the department issued cell phone in 2003 and have never looked back. I'll be the only guy in Thee Olde Folks Home that doesn't have brain cancer and/or some form of dementia from the cell phone they couldn't live without.

I was/am under the impression that the person who said "The machines are going to take over" was 100% correct. Now We know that even a machine that is not currently "On" still saps the negative ions in the atmosphere and the body needs both -/+ ions to be 'in balance'.

I do this site, a bass site, Solunar Tables, weather, e-mail and farcebook™ about twice a month, so about 1.5 hrs. a day oh and 40 hrs. of porn.. hahaha

I think if our planets in danger now, we are raising a generation separated from nature and will lack the proper respect for it.

And the only thing left when 'they' blow up Mother Earth and they will certainly do same, the only things left will be "Flori-Duh Tumbleweeds" ( Walmart® plastic bags...)

Think? Look at the the ONLY thing the human body NEEDS to survive, water. We know more about the Moon and space yet We are 3/4 covered with water and all We know about it is that it is poisoned in many places (Flint, Michigan- Anywhere that 'they' add fluoride to it...)

I'm just venting as clouds and heavy rains have moved in and My afternoon session has been cancelled. Tomorrow looks like dog park first thing and maybe some angling??

"No phone, 3 pets and left-handed cigarettes, I'm certainly no King of the road..."

I guess Summer Camp at Lake Winonoka is out??

The other day. . . . I flipped the main circuit breaker in our home.

Within minutes, everyone was gathered in the same room and was reading books. I left it for an hour (didn't want stuff to spoil) and then switched power back on.

might want to try it.

It's been a beautiful spring/summer in Chicagoland - we just found out the new neighbors 2 doors down, who moved in around January, have 2 young children. The extent of their time outside seems to consist of getting in the car in the garage when the garage door is open to go to Church and then right back in when they get home.

Now, they're bizarre as hell, but man, those poor kids. I wonder what they think looking out the window and seeing ours play outside every day, including in the rain.

Yea its pretty fun for a few days, but when you loose it for 2 weeks its kind of a drag. I do enjoy nature an awful lot I like to make all kinds of films, about nature mostly, its great.

its a shame, it seems a lot of people are over sheltering their children these days. its a pity. To pacify them here is your i pad or game system.

For me its hard to get my son out he complains about being out but, most times he enjoys himself.
