As kids are preparing their summer breaks and what that may look like in their minds, the adults that care for them are shaping their own thoughts. Sometimes, technology dictates what people do with their time.

Tricia Bates is a family life educator for Avera Health. She discusses the importance of children getting outside to play as opposed to sitting in front of a screen.
