THIS CHILLING VIDEO MIGHT MAKE YOU KICK YOUR KIDS OUT OF THE HOUSE — TO PLAY OUTSIDE:

One of my favorite parenting blogs, Free Range Kids, posted this absolutely incredible (and somewhat chilling) advertisement from the health food company Nature Valley Today. In it, grandparents describe their childhoods, filled with fishing, blueberry picking and even fending off bears. What do the kids spend their time doing? It involves a lot of glowing screens.

The video is chilling. What can we as parents do?

Let your kids play outside? Why on earth would you risk having Child Protective Services confiscate them?
