This time round we bring you an article for parents and children. As a product of our fast and results-focussed lives that we lead, many of our kids find that school work becomes the centre of their lives. Be it homework from school, or the various enrichment classes which have been lined up, the emphasis on our children nowadays is on how well they do academically.
However, the author of lemmelearn.com would suggest that there may be a good reason to buck this focus, and instead, let our children just play. They argue that through free play, children are able to pick up many invaluable skills that can't be taught, but rather, have to be experienced.
So head on over to lemmelearn.com for some interesting insights into play, and why it may be so important for your child!
