Recently I saw a rather wonderful T.E.D.x talk about children and play. It was based on solid research, delivered with calm but very firm directness, and simply rang very true.
As a child who woke up every morning thinking about what I was going to play that day, it struck a strong chord with me. As a grandmother who notices the difference in the kind of play I experienced as a child and the kind I see my grandchildren experiencing, I found it quite compelling. Here it is. I hope it will stimulate your thinking and that you will share it with others who care about our children, our grandchildren and humankind.
