Kids today are spending more time being sedentary and less time being active and outdoors -- in other words, playing! In schools across the country, recess periods are shrinking and homework is increasing. Tag, soccer, and even running are getting banned in the school yard. And it's getting harder and harder to find a playground.
The decline of play is closely linked to childhood obesity; ADHD; behavioral problems; and stunted mental development. If we want our children to succeed, we have to make playtime a priority.
