Do you feel sorry for the kids of the present generation?
I feel extremely sorry for the kids, these days.
These kids are busier with studies rather than finding time to play.
The kid’s back is breaking because of the weight of the school bag.
Physical activity in the school curriculum is just for the namesake in developing countries.
In the image above you notice these two kids immersed in what they are doing and deeply discussing something probably thanking their parents for not interfering with their play.
This is what is known as unorganized play
“The physical exercise and emotional stretching that children enjoy in unorganized play are more varied and less time-bound than is found in organized sports.
Playtime—especially unstructured, imaginative, exploratory play—is increasingly recognized as an essential component of wholesome child development”
Parents must understand this fact
“Children need the freedom and the time to play; play is not a luxury play is a necessity”
Kay Redfield Jamison
”Children have a full-time occupation. It’s called PLAY. Let them be occupied by it from their early years until their twilight years” Unknown
