60 Play Is More Important And Easier Than You Think

Avital Schrieber

This story illustrates the importance of play more than most: In studies of sociopaths stuck in prison with life sentences, NONE of them had healthy play histories.

Play and creativity are essential for children’s development but is threatened by our too-busy, achievement-oriented lifestyle. Are your kids getting enough of the right kind of play? Avital, The Parenting Junkie, and Hunter riff about the problems they have with our current educational system and why they made the choices they did. Learn Hunter’s big beef with the conventional education system and what it has to do with intrinsic vs. extrinsic motivation.
