“Nature always wears the color of the spirit.”~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Do you ever worry about this generation of children? I do, for many reasons. When I observe how children play, it concerns me. It’s so different! Our black and white TV’s did not consume children the way electronic devices in this technological world do today. Playtime for my generation did not include gaming on a computer, mobile phones and i-pads. We played outside games, board games and made crude telephones out of paper cups and string!
Parents placed restrictions on the amount of “indoors” time children spent. Creative play outdoors in the woods and streams, getting muddy and wet, was our idea of the ultimate fulfilling fun. Catching fireflies, making jewelry out of dandelion chains, creating tree houses and forts underneath the leafy canopy kept us busy all day long.
“Mother Natures Child” a film from Fuzzy Slippers Productions, addresses the impact of children’s play in this day and age on their development. The film was an award-winner in the 2011 Environmental Film Festival in o Washington, D.C.. Increasingly, children are suffering behavioral disorders due to being “nature deficient.” It’s the truth of the matter. “Mother Nature’s Child” is, indeed, eye-opening.
Independent filmmaker Camilla Rockwell of Fuzzy Slippers Productions, a friend from Burlington,Vermont, has worked on several impressive productions with Ken Burns. Her films are top-notch and address significant issues. Another award-winning film she brought to the forefront is “Pioneers of Hospice: Changing the Face of Dying.” It was produced for the Visiting Nurse Association.
Thank you, Camilla, for the production of “Mother Nature’s Child.” It needs to be seen by every parent.
