The current state of affairs regarding outdoor plays has been explained in the following section.Luchs& Fikus (2013) stated that the physical and the social environment of the children in the urban areas are dynamic. There is a renewed commitments made in the various developmental communities about importance of creating an outdoor place for the children. Luchs & Fikus, (2013) conducted a comparative study about the different play environment in Bremen, German. It was determined that the children in the naturally designated areas had positive role in the social competencies. Conventional playground was more controlled and did not allow the child to have a space to imagine. However, in the case of a more natural setting there was more space for the child to grow. The studies showed there were increase in constructive play and enabled the child to gain more communication or negotiation skills. Introduction to diverse natural environment also enabled the children to learn more about the various kinds of development. Hence, it was determined in this research that the children benefited more from different kinds of play areas in natural settings rather than confined playgrounds.
This research alludes that the children benefit from a setting where there are more natural elements. There is a general awareness in the public regarding the importance of playing in the nature. Barnett& Weber (2008) stated that the mother is the primary caretaker of the child and play an important role in the child development. Mothers usually decide the kind of extracurricular activities that a child needs to be involved and the extent of the participation of the child is initially decided by the mothers. The mother’s perception is imperative in making the decision as to the kind of extracurricular activities that the children need to participate. Barnett& Weber (2008) research states that the mother sin general wanted their children to have a lot of interaction with nature and they consider that it is important for the children to have recreational activities to benefit the child. Hence the primary guardians i.e. the mother in majority of the cases should be convinced to make the child to play more.
