We Believe in What Play Does for Kids

There’s a current epidemic around the Country of children, primary school children, being prescribed medications for their behavior.   This isn’t anything new these days as it’s become the societal norm, even accepted as necessary, almost to the point of parents being silently questioned and judged in their parenting skills if at least one of their children are not taking some form of prescription medication for behavioral problems. 

This is not supposed to be the norm. This is not how human beings were created to exist, but lets, for the sake of argument, take a look into why this is happening.  This isn’t some new trend of disease but rather a new trend of imbalance, not in the child, but in the environment from which the child is exposed.

Children today are taken into a system which now dictates their very existence.  Everything is controlled now in such uniformity that any deviance in the expected outcome is deemed, abnormal.  The truth is… Children are abnormal.. it’s why we call them children.  They are our offspring and they are a new and wonderful creation of energy and curiosity, much of which we have outgrown and now take for granted, not remembering how once we were also in need of such guidance and understanding.

playsets for childrenToday we stuff our children into safe everything, ordering their lives and placing them in daycares, schools and even homes which have no room for they to play, explore and discover.  We have forgotten how important these aspects are to our children development.  Play time is essential to a child.   It ensures their development both physically as well as mentally, emotionally and socially.  Single play or in a group setting will challenge your child’s imagination as well as their problem solving skills, causing them to think and grow and exercise their limitless potential. 

This is why we believe in what play does for kids.  It’s the quintessential necessity to giving them the tools they need to grow into their absolute greatest potential.  Do you truly thing Micheal Jordan just woke up one day and decided to become the greatest basketball player ever…?   No.  He made that decision from being engaged in playing basketball and continuing with a dream born from that play.   How can we possibly expect our children to grow into their full potential, dare I state, into their destiny, without the development which can only be achieved through play?

Developing Imagination Is Developing Success

As parents, grandparents and guardians, we want our children to have the best possible chance to be successful in every aspect of their lives.  We give everything we have to give them the best chances and opportunities.

One of the simplest things we can do to help them develop strong skills in life is to inspire rather than inhibit their imagination.

People with strong imaginations also tend to develop great problem solving skills, become incredible inventors, develop incredible management skills, and end up developing careers that change industries.

People with strong imaginations find it much easier to think outside of the box and find solutions to problems that other people can’t find.  They are quicker to develop analytic skills that help in all areas of life using logic and strategy to overcome problems rather than depending on fleeting emotion or being inhibited by an inability to cope.

One of the greatest ways to begin to develop all of these things in children is to place them in a situation where they can begin to explore and utilize all of those things for themselves.

The movie Man of Steel makes reference to Superman only knowing how strong he is by constantly testing the limits of his abilities.

It is much the same with children as they grow and develop.  That is why providing them an opportunity to explore their own limits in a safe and protected environment is key.

This is why we believe in play, and the power of a quality playset in a child’s life.

With the ability to have easy access to imagination inspiring physical play, they are able to hone not only their mental skills, but also develop their physical strength and ability as well.

Add friends or neighborhood kids to the mix and you have a situation that breeds the development of many skills crucial to life success.  And in a world ruled by technology, starting children young in the right atmosphere before they become enveloped in the technological work is critical.

There is no replacement for learning to develop relationship skills like one on one interaction. There is no replacement for learning problem solving skills like a hands on environment.  There is no replacement for physical agility training like playsets.

So why wait?  By the time you “think” your child is ready to start utilizing a quality wooden swingset for their benefit, you’re already behind schedule.

Now is the time to get a system setup in your own yard and give them the access they are longing for.  Not to mention, you get the benefit of a year around place for them to burn off energy and sleep better at night.

Studies are proving more all the time that quality physical activity and outdoor time leads to much better study and retention rates in school as well as much higher immune system function.  It even helps to combat the eye strain and degradation associated with prolonged time in front of electronics.
