Nature Helped Many Kids Cope During Lockdown: Study FRIDAY, Oct. 15, 2021 (HealthDay News) -- Children who spent more time in nature during pandemic lockdowns suffered fewer behavioral and emotional problems, British researchers say.The investigators also found that children in wealthier families tended to increase their connection to nature during the pandemic more than those from poorer families.
