It is imperative that you give your child this...





Free Time!  Children need free time.  They need time to play.  They need time to go outside.  They need time to interact with other children--siblings and friends. They need time to 
create, 
explore, 
imagine, 
read, 
daydream, 
rest, 
breathe, 
be.

They need free time.  They need to experience boredom and learn to combat it with imagination.

Give your children the gift of free time.  Put the electronics away.  Resist the temptation to sign them up for every club, class and activity.  There is value in free time.  Don't forget this.  You are giving your child a gift if they have some time to just PLAY!
