“Do you know how hard it is to get kids to exercise for 60 minutes a day? Do you know how easy it is to get kids to play for 60 minutes a day?” Jill Vialet has started a movement of sorts to encourage more play in 2014. Rather than viewing play as an indulgence she challenges us to view it as something that will improve a kids’ life. Have them turn off the TV and iGadgets and play. Researchers know that play is therapeutic. It enhances relationships, social skills, school performance and even brain development.
