Children at Play: 1984 vs 2013

Play is very important, I cannot reiterate that enough.

There are so many benefits in playing.  For one, it’s a great exercise when the body is moving and running around.  Being a playmate, friendship will flourish.  It is an essential part of children’s development since it contributes to their physical, mental, social and emotional well-being.  This is the reason I keep telling the kids to go outside and play.  As an adult, I will be the first one to take part with the children.  I still love to play.

Children playing

Pass forward.

Play have taken a whole new meaning today.  Enter “smart” technologies. Are these technologies making the children smarter?

New Generation

Ironic.  This time I cannot participate.  I don’t even know how to use a cell phone or iPad.  The children are teaching me how to use them and I refuse to play.

    One thats sometimes hard to understand. Especially watching such young children on ipads in restaurants. At 45 I love playing still. Lol i love family gatherings. I get to push the children on the swings and kick a ball with them. Hugs and nite from Oz, Perpetua!
