We know we can change these statistics by focusing on play:
- Play has been shown to help children adjust to the school setting and even to enhance their learning readiness and behaviors as well as problem-solving skills (American Academy of Pediatrics, “The Importance of Play in Promoting Healthy Child Development and Maintaining Strong Parent-Child Bonds,” 2007).
- Active kids are more facile intellectually and perform better academically in the long term (Stuart Brown, The New York Times, 2009)
- Encouraging a child to simply play on a daily basis not only provides great physical benefits, but also has positive effects on learning, social relationships and mood. (Burdette & Whitaker, Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, 2005).
