Children: Three Generations of Play
This clip has been created by Nature Valley and is both sweet and disturbing. It starts out sweet as we hear about play activities from two generations. It becomes disturbing we realize that today's children focus on indoor activities involving phones and computer games.
Take some time to try this with your family. Your children would love to hear what their grandparents and parents did for fun. Then ask them the same question.
Then think about trying to go a week without tech-based entertainment. Not because "tech-tainment" is bad, but because there is so much more out there, and our children need to learn to practice self-discipline. There is so much children's brains learn to do when children play outside, or face-to-face.
Plus, they would love to play with you!
