A Child at Play
In honor of Jean, who went to be with the Lord this week, I decided to use a quote about children and play. This quote reminds me of her, her love for children, and the value she placed on play. She understood the power of play in the life, development, and growth of a child. Play is often touted as an optional and simply recreational activity. Play is essential. Facilitating play needs to be raised as a priority in education. May that message continue on in me.
Erik Erikson encapsules the wonder and marvel of play. If you want to know your child, watch her play.
Note: I found the quote from Erik Erikson at brainyquote.com.
