Let the Kids Play
Steve posted last summer on The Dangerous Book for Boys and I have been seeing it cited more and more in the news and the blogosphere. There seems to be a gathering movement in favor of more traditional unstructured play for children. The NY Times weighs in on the subject in a recent piece. I was appalled to learn from it that there are actually associations named the National Institute for Play and the American Association for the Child's Right to Play. I'm not sure exactly what that says about us as a society.
