South-West children play less than parents used to, survey says

First published in Chard

CHILDREN in the South-West play outside a third less than their mums and dads did in childhood, according to a survey.

Most parents surveyed told Co-operative Childcare that they spent their youth exploring outdoors, cycling and involved in playground-style games.

But they revealed their children spend less time taking part in these activities due to limited time and safety concerns.
