Paleontologist and "Dinosaur Train" host Scott Sampson says that the average American child spends about four to seven minutes a day outside. In his new book "How to Raise a Wild Child," Sampson calls on parents to become "nature mentors" and help their kids connect to the outdoors. We'll talk with Sampson about how to raise kids who love nature at a time when gratification is only a click away.

Guests:

Scott Sampson, vice president of research and collections at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, dinosaur paleontologist and author of "How to Raise a Wild Child: The Art And Science of Falling in Love with Nature"
