Kids need alone time!

18 Apr

….unstructured, unplanned, unorganized alone time…to relax, to daydream, to just plain think….

Too often we overschedule kids into activities without thinking about the added stresses this may create.

Somehow we got the notion that WE are responsible for our kids’ happiness. So we give kids videos, babysitters, classes, sports, i-gadgets, computers, field trips or some stimulating activity to keep them busy all the time. We don’t need to–they don’t need it!

Kids, even babies, need alone time to solve their own problems, cope with separation, and be responsible for their own happiness.

Make sure your children each have adequate alone time…..please!
