On average about how much time do your kids spent outside?? How much did you spend outside as a kid?
My mom would make us spend at least an hour outside each day. I would say that my children do not spend as much time outside as I would like daily but summers in FL are a killer.

we dont spend as much time out as i did as a kid but we live on a side street and there is construction going on literally all around us. usually it's about an hour a day or so
I would say on average about an hour and a half a day. Some days we're not outside at all but on the weekends, they are outside a lot.
I spent way more time outside... mine will be spending more time outside soon, we are getting a puppy today :)
right now? not that much. this time of year it is so hot & muggy, it's hard to spend any amount of time outside. come next month they'll be outside pretty much all weekend till the heat returns in june. during the week they go out when they can (outside of recess at school that is) but they have after school activities & homework which limit outdoor time.
growing up i pretty much lived outside when the weather permitted, in ohio that wasn't often in the winter.
Not much...too busy these days...
We leave for school at 7:30 and they get home from school around 3ish...homework, and then Karate for several hours M-T-Th-Sat...Wednesdays, we are at Church from 6:30-9:30...they play outside once or twice a week, usually on Wednesday before dinner and on Saturdays...

My daughter, tons , because of outdoor sports....My boys, it depends. Not as much as they should , but some days more than others. When we were little there just wasn't anything else to do but be outside. Besides, I basically disliked everyone else in my house, so outside was a better option! HA!
