Why Unleashing the Instinct to Play Will Make Our Children Happier, More Self-reliant, and Better Students for LifeBook - 2013
Both inside and outside of school, children today seldom play and explore without adult supervision, and are afforded few opportunities to control their own lives. The result: anxious, unfocused children who see schooling-- and life-- as a series of hoops to struggle through. Gray argues that we are squelching our children's' natural instincts to learn, equipped with the curiosity, playfulness, and sociability to direct their own education.
