.... In my day we spent our weekends outdoors, running, jumping, climbing, playing in mud. I know several kids and none of them are interested.
I know plot sizes are smaller, so that has an impact but what else could it be.
I was my kids to be out

Why are kids as active

There was quite possibly a number of kids 'in your day' who preferred not to run and jump, climb or play in mud. Maybe you just didn't notice them?

TV, video games, iPads movies etc all play a part I would assume?!!

A lot of parents aren't as comfortable letting kids do that as they used to be and that plays a big part. I'm not trying to start the usual debate about what is and isn't safe and whether the world is more dangerous or not, just saying that what is considered acceptable risk is a lot different in my experience to what it used to be.

I can guarantee you my kids are most certainly active! They never stop.

My kids are out and about all day every day
I don't think these days are any different to those days. I'm sure there were plenty of kids back then who were inactive as their are now. Individual personalities play a big part. Mine are all active outdoorsy kids, but I've met plenty of kids who are less active and prefer to spend their time indoors doing indoor activities.
As long as children are getting enough exercise they should be able to spend their time as they prefe spending it I guess.
