KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Avoiding nature deficiency disorder is not a medical term, however more and more children are growing up without a connection to nature.

Many blame it completely on technology.  Others say it's all about balance.

The Barstow School's Kellye Crockett appeared on Wednesday's FOX 4 Morning Show to talk more about what we can do to find a balance between technology and nature.

Crockett made these suggestions.

  • Turn off the screens
  • Let boredom in
  • Give kids permission to explore
  • Find nature in your neighborhood

There are two great websites that Crockett recommended -- Hit the trails in Kansas City
and the Community Gardens and the Beanstalk Garden.
