Parenting During Summer Break: 3 Reasons Kids Need Unstructured Play & Free Time Parenting Opinion
Busy moms can sometimes over-organize their children's lives during the summer with camp, activities and too much academics. My thought is to allow children to take a real break during their vacation before it's back-to-school time.
Unstructured play and free time are essential for kids in building:
According to HelpMeGrow.org, "Unstructured play allows children the freedom to explore, create and discover without predetermined rules or guidelines. It’s been shown to foster cognitive development while boosting physical development and social and emotional development. It specifically helps creativity and imagination, problem-solving abilities and social skills."
Think Christopher Robin and Huck Finn. Allow exploration and creation. This summer, give your children the free space to just be kids.
