Where do they go?

More and more people are trying to better their lives by moving either to or near cities that have more opportunity than that of a rural community. However, with this shift in environment it gives the child less room to maneuver around and play as they choose. With the constant building up of once near deserted areas are leaving kids as well as parents to worry about how safe it is  to play outside (Skenazy np). Oncoming traffic, crime, and construction all play a part into how people let their kids play. Also, along with the development of urban and suburban areas parks are being depleted for housing purposes (Skenazy np).
