Building 'bases', hanging out on a beater, playing hide and seek - so recently children spent time in the yards. And now? According to 64 percent. Poles stay in homes, where they prefer to play games or watch tv. According to a study carried out for the JELP brand by TNS Polska, most of us are very affectionate about our childhood, thinking that children used to be happier. In a study conducted for the JELP brand, known to parents with hypoallergenic laundry detergents for children, Poles were asked when the children were happier. Only one in five people thought that a generation born in the 21st century is happier than people born earlier. The older we are, the better we evaluate our childhood times.

- Our children are growing up in completely different conditions today - the development of medicine, new technologies, access to products that would never be found before. Despite this, the respondents believe that children raised in the 80s, 70s and earlier were happier compared to modern children - comments the results of the study commissioned by the JELP brand, Joanna Skrzyńska from TNS Polska.

Perhaps the children lack outdoor games? Fewer and fewer children can be seen in Polish courtyards. Why? Most Poles (64%) believe that children stay at home to watch TV or play games. Every fourth (24%) respondent states that there are no playgrounds, so the children have nowhere to play. A similar group indicates additional activities for children, who thus have less time to play.

Has the yard replaced the internet, games and television with a wide selection of children's programs? We used to spend time in a completely different way.

Return to the past - sweet childhood times

In a study conducted for the JELP brand, Poles were asked which backyard games are passe today. Almost half of the respondents (47%) believe that boys' iconic pastimes have gone out of business - shooting with a slingshot, bottle caps - and girls' favorite games, like jumping in gum and playing class. Also team games such as: stalking, hide and seek, "policemen and thieves", according to Poles, are no longer an attractive form of spending time for modern children.

On the list of childhood games that have now passed into oblivion, he also found - and how - legendary beater, within which the social life of each estate once flourished.

More than every third Pole thinks that childhood games such as: building a "base" in the yard, real-life games (e.g. "greengrocer", "home" popular in the 70s), and even reading comics and cartoons. Contemporary thirty-year-olds, i.e. Poles born in the late 1970s and early 1980s, more often than others think that the yard's "classics" are gone forever. So maybe they are the ones who feel the greatest loss and reminiscent of their childhood fun.

Children clean and prone to allergies?

Despite the significant improvement in the quality of life in recent years, the number of people with allergies is growing, which is a particularly noticeable trend after 1989.
- Over the past 25 years, Poland has caught up with Europe in terms of the number of people who are suffering from allergies. Currently, this disease can be dealt with every fourth preschool child. The causes of the spread of this civilization disease include air pollution, but also excessive hygiene, sterile living conditions, chemistry in our environment - says Dr. Izabela Rogozińska, pediatrician, expert of the JELP brand.

TNS Polska, at the request of JELP, asked Poles why - in their opinion - allergies, called by many plagues of the 21st century, have spread so significantly in recent years. Almost half of the respondents (47%) indicate, previously absent, artificial substances contained in food. Slightly fewer people - 41% of respondents - give the polluted air as the reason for the spread of allergies, and 38% of them unhealthy food, i.e. burgers, fries or chips loved by children.

Inhabitants of large cities, as a reason for the growing number of allergies, most often pay attention to poor diet of children and excessive care for the health of children. Is this really the case?

Do we care too much about our children's health?

In the study conducted for the JELP brand, they were also asked which ones we would take measures to protect our little ones from flu or colds. - Most Poles in the first place would change the child's diet to a healthier, but also reached for natural, home-made ways. Every third person, as a preventive measure, would go for a vaccination with their toddler, but also gave the child vitamins or dietary supplements. It is a pity that there are still so few followers who have walks, generally spending more time outdoors. Thanks to this, we immunize our children against e.g. infections - comments Dr. Izabela Rogozińska, an expert from the JELP brand, of the study results.

The older we are, the more skeptical we are about vaccinations and the less willing we would send a child to them. Support for this method of prevention decreases slightly with age - a toddler would be sent to vaccinations by 31% of Poles over 40, but already 36% by younger ones. Proponents of vaccination are mainly singles, people with higher education, holding managerial positions, well-off.
