Let your kid be a kid!
“When will your child have time to play?” asks Levine. “Just…play? This is what kids need!” Play is serious business, insists Levine. “We tend to see it as wasted time, but it’s actually anything but. Play is the work of childhood. It’s a classroom in which children develop a whole set of skills that really matter in life. Indeed, research shows that children who attend play-based preschools, as opposed to academic preschools, do significantly better in school down the line.”
