I think this is the best video I’ve ever seen on the importance of play. This YouTube video called Prescription for Play provides remarkable insight into how the simple act of allowing kids to play will create happy and successful adults. This video address critical issues facing children and families today — rising levels of stress and anxiety, obesity-related health problems, dramatically reduced time for free play and play outdoors, hectic and overscheduled family life — and offers solutions to addressing these problems.
Here’s the video. If you are a parent who likes this video, please “Like” http://www.facebook.com/parentactionforhealthykids where you will receive similar important and useful parenting information.
