Reading through the recent edition of “Parenting” magazine I loved a quote it featured in its Q&A section. It asked kids, “What do kids do better than adults?”
“Have fun! All grown-up do is sit around while kids play in the park.”
— Vivian, 5, New York City
It’s easy to say we sit around because we’re so damned tired from working, taking care of the kids, cleaning, shopping, helping with homework, and getting little or no sleep, but little Vivian has something here. Adults, especially parents, need to play more. Think about that next time you are about to sit on the bench thumbing through your iPhone while your kid is on the jungle gym.
