Are Your Kids Getting Enough Pretend Play Time?
Back in the day, "play time" didn't mean "screen time," because there weren't that many screens available. Now, of course, children have so many electronic entertainment options that they may not be getting enough good old fashioned pretend play.
One mom, Sarah Wilson, decided to do something about that. The New York Times reports that Wilson brought back the balls and blocks in her house after she visited her local kindergarten and saw "a wall of computers and little desks" instead of a sandbox and toys.
