It has been observed since last few years, children’s free play time has been continually declining. This is really a thought of concern. I remember when we used to play different games in our childhood especially during vacations. We used to spend the whole day with our friends. But now children don’t play enough which is keeping them from becoming confident adults. This lack of play affects not only their physical development but their emotional and mental development also.
This leads to depression, anxiety, and problems of self-control. The study says that the reason behind this decline in play is their parents who always restrict them from doing outdoor activities because of safety concerns.
Another reason can be lack of time. Children these days don’t get enough time to play freely with their friends or do those activities which they like. They spend more than half of their time in schools and then after coming back they complete their school work only. They only get enough to play during weekends or holidays.
Both the parents these days are working. They are not giving enough time to their kids. Parents should try to spend as much quality time they can spend with their children. These way children will learn and share their problems with their parents. And they will be able to gain confidence also. Try to share your childhood experiences with your kids. They will love it and will definitely try to follow it.
So dear friends go and play with your kids as much as you can .Don’t wait for weekends. Let them fly. Enjoy with them. I will see you in my next blog. Keep reading. Lots of love.
