The Giles Frontier
“Hi, I'm Holly, I grew up right before technology was about to take off and change the trajectory of childhood forever. By the time my own sons came along, summer "vacation" had changed. Children spent more time indoors instead of out. Gone were the days of running barefoot outside, playing make-believe games, and riding bikes during summer vacation.
Nowadays, even during summer, children spend 90% of their time indoors or in structured, adult-led activities with little or no free time to play and explore like children should.”
