Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning.
But for children play is serious learning.
Play is really the work of childhood.
~ Fred Rogers ~
i therefore conclude, me and my friends seriously worked hard back then 😉
I think you are the first blogger who introduced “play” as a cultural expression – it’s certainly part of children’s culture (and should be a greater part of our adult culture). But also, children in different cultures have different play expressions and vastly different tools to do so. Thanks for your post.
one of culture’s definition is the development or improvement of the mind by education or training.
looking back at all the childhood games we played, i must say that play, universally trains young mind of all the how to’s in life early on, in a fun way.
and yes, i’m with you that adults need not lose the child in them. we need to play now more than ever, perhaps?
i had a hard time deciding what to post this week. your words assured me i made the right choice. thank you 🙂
