The Value of Play

The headmistress at the Common Room wrote an excellent post called "Give the Gift of Free Time." I heartily agree with her thoughts on the subject.

    November 27, 2006 - More important than we know

    Posted by ChristyH

    I went over there and read that blog and thought it is was great. I grew up that way not because I was unscheduled but I was also an only child. (If you knew me you would say that, that explains a lot ;0) Anyway, when we are so busy we have no time to think or mull ideas over. I have friends who are very scheduled and they say they enjoy it but I wonder if that isn't some sort way of escaping deeper matters for them. If we raise our children to be so busy then they will continue in that life when they are older. Not just for children, we all need "playtime"!
