Concern over cars and strangers keeps children indoors

www.grub4life.org.uk today reports that traffic and a fear of strangers are preventing children from playing outdoors, according to new research by Play England. 22-08-2012

The survey of 1,000 parents with children under the age of 15 found that nearly half (49 per cent) say that a fear of strangers stops their children from playing outside.

Around 46 per cent of parents said traffic is a barrier to outdoor play, and almost a third highlighted a fear of accidents and injuries, while 17 per cent claimed that their children prefer to be indoors.
