I believe there is no better solution to Nature Deficit Disorder, coined by Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods, then a small stream. Its also the best solution to beating the heat in this weather oven we are in. Get yourself to the nearest creek and jump in. Explore. Find treasures in the sand and gravel. Look up the creatures you see and find. With proper adult supervision, a small stream offers heaven on Earth to a kid of any age.
