Spaces must tolerate movement and noise generated by the child. Children, like adults, are influenced in how they feel and behave by the total environment and the physical setting in particular. Adults notice order and cleanliness; children notice small spaces to crawl into or materials to make something out of. A large open area may be an invitation to run if it is of the right scale and proportion; but it also can create sense of fear and loneliness if the proportions are beyond in relation to children.

Children are not experiencing the outdoors the way they used to. It used to be that children would look out the window at the world when they went on road trips but now they are constantly absorbed by their electronic devices. The Last Child in the Wood by Richard Louv is making a very strong argument on this topic. Richard Louv is concerned with making sure children make the same connections about nature that many generations have made before them. In this piece Louv used rhetorical questioning to draw attention to his most crucial points.

In Rosin’s article, she makes a strong argument that kids need independence by making her audience, genre, and purpose known from start to finish.
