Don’t Take Our Word for It!
Play… I smile as I think about my three girls have more fun chasing each other with glow stick flowers, butterflies, and other creatures and laughing hysterically than they do with a screen. I hear them early in the morning talking and playing with toys acting out their favorite movie and book scenes…kids just aren’t like this any more! In a world where everything seems to hinge on a test score, Dana and Nathen remind us that it is perfectly okay to stop adulting and unleash our inner little kid! In doing so, we show our kids how to release the stress of life and take a break from reality, if only for a moment… They need it and, dare I say, so do you! –T.P., Memphis, TN
