Mommy worry

I know, play is nature's training for life. Every child has the right to play, but too often this right is stifled by a societal pressure to protect our children from any conceivable harm. As a parent I know only too well the scrapes that children can get into. I also know that play is a potential source of harm to my children.

At real play, children are in charge, instinctively making hundreds of decisions as they assess and determine the levels of risk they want to take, physically, emotionally and socially: mastering, day by day, an increasing repertoire of skills, adding to their bank of experience.

Throughout the animal kingdom, the play of the young is commonly observed to be a rehearsal of life skills, fundamental for species' survival. Human children are no different, needing the make-believe world of play to experience and master the fullest range of challenges – and their emotional responses to them – as a series of lessons for the world they will eventually have to negotiate for real. So, through play, children acquire confidence, but also an awareness of limits and boundaries. They learn, in short, how to be safe.

I wish I have heart to let them play freely :-)
