A kid’s first social network

March 14, 2013
We had social networking when I was a kid too. It was called outside. A site for face to face, direct interaction. Where kids play real games, make up the rules, settle the arguments. Where they develop interpersonal skills, coping skills, social skills, all the skills needed in life. A great site. A sight to see.

 

What’s happening to our playgrounds?!

March 13, 2013
Why are sedentary games such as “tic-tac-toe” making their way into public playgrounds, replacing physical activities?
Kids can do that indoors. Public playgrounds were designed to provide large spaces for physical movement. Sadly, our society continues to condition kids for a sedentary lifestyle..and then wonder why childhood obesity has reached unprecedented rates.
