Less than Half of Young Teens Play Outdoors, Survey Shows
The number of young teenagers who play outside has dropped dramatically according to a new survey which suggests the youngsters of today are far more sedentary than their parents were at the same age. The Barnardo’s study found that less than half (48 percent) of 13 to 15 year-olds play outside, a significant decline on previous generations. Some 77 percent of 18 to 24-year-olds said they played outdoors at the same age, with the figure rising to 87 percent among 45 to 54 year-olds.
