Has the world really come to a point where adults and children need to be taught how to play….
Kids need to play; defined as unstructured, fun and imaginary. Movement play is the stepping stone to an active childhood, which defines an adult’s activity level by age eight. Creating active children is a key to curbing obesity, diabetes, chronic disease that can last a lifetime. The art of play is dissolving rapidly with the increase in screens, technology and school demands. It is becoming necessary to teach kids and parents how to play. It is important that we begin this education at a very early age in the clinic and continue the education and resources into the community.
