At this site we style ourselves as “Resources for Teachers and Parents”. In this multi-faceted child raising and teaching environment for sure that is challenging. What is one of the best resources available to help our children? Apparently it is to let them play!
How many times have your heard the saying that if your work is your play your life will be a happy one! Here is one quote: “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” – Confucius
Just imagine what would happen if we could apply this principle to the education of our children not just now but for the rest of our children’s lives!
Today I found this article on the importance of play for children. Clearly children of all ages (including you and me!) are candidates for play and more and more play. Seriously why be serious when we could be enjoying ourselves doing whatever it is that needs to be done? That is a sensible way to take our life’s choices seriously.
