I have a 3-year-old daughter, and a 1-year-old son. All summer, I've been taking them to either the local playground or to an indoor squishy-floored play area. While doing this, I have noticed three basic parent types.
If we drive children away from their innate needs to go within themselves to reflect and imagine, we'll be losing something of our humanity. Are we looking up from our screens often enough -- and teaching our children to do so?
