Does being outside change you child's personality?

Sometimes my 2 year old is fussy and easily bored inside. Then we come outside and he's a completely different child.

  • Fresh air & exercise will do it every time. Exercise has the same effect on little ones as it does adults. Gets rid of stale, pent up energy & they release all those "happy hormones". Makes for a much happier child.

  • My kids have much more fun outside! My oldest tends to get a little more rowdy when we are outdoors but that drains all of her extra energy reserves.

  • My lil man is always a bit happier when we go outside. I don't know why maybe it's the fresh air?

  • I don't think DD is a different person but yes sometimes she gets bored with the same tpy inside and outside there is always some new sound or something new to interest her. Everyone needs a change of scenery once in a while.
