What Kids Want
"Kids today have 25 percent less leisure time than they did just two decades ago," Taylor says. "They are yearning for more time to just be kids. Many children – from ages 5 to 17 – say they want to spend more time outside. There’s an entire chapter in my book on that subject."
When asked specifically if her research showed that kids want to spend more time fishing, Taylor responded without hesitation.
"Yes! I distinctly recall one boy who drew a picture of himself fishing with his dad. In general, kids want a slower pace, and one of the wonderful things about fishing is that it helps us slow down, notice the water, the wind, the current."
