A tightly scheduled summer

Statisticians and social historians continue to say that parents of young children are incorporating unstructured play into their child’s lives.

I wish that were true, but around me, I even see preschoolers jumping between programs, organized activities and camps.

I believe moms and dads will need to be more intentional about raising independent, self-reliant children before schedules loosen up. That surely isn’t happening this summer.
