Why won't we let them play?

Over the years it has become more apparent that children spend less time playing than they did in previous generations. Each year, there are less and less children playing outside ...

Is it through children's desires that less time is spent playing or is playtime thought to be unnecessary by those who administer to children's needs? The main fault is the fact that children go to school. They receive lessons and begin exercises very often being asked to finish what they haven't completed in class at home. Often there are homework subjects on top. What isn't finished off during the week is left for the weekend. So when do these young people have time off to play?
No wonder populations from all over the world are becoming obese and unhealthy - it's about time we allowed our children to be children and have time to play.
