Dr Peter Gray gives a powerful TED talk that will have you thinking.
Do you feel stuck in habits or neighbourhoods where play isn't happening?
We have tried and tested all sorts of initiatives to create a more playful neighbourhood.
Home-schooling, nature play, neighbourhood gardens, markets, picnics, parties, movies, camps and play-overs... we have had a lot of fun getting to know our neighbours! It takes time and wont pay the mortgage, but the friendships and freedom our children have enjoyed has been priceless.
To be honest it wasn't an easy transition. The first thing to change was my head space. Cultivating bucket-loads of curiosity and playfulness - and letting go of a tidy house and the fear of being left behind in the career race. It hasn't just been the children who have benefitted.
"Play keeps us vital and alive. It gives us an enthusiasm for life that is irreplaceable. Without it, life just doesn’t taste good." Lucia Capocchione
