Fam, let’s get outside more. Yes, run around/act silly with your children. It’s vital. Not too much structure though. For the most part just allow yourself and your youths to “just be.” All the tv time and gadgets (electronic, computerized…) are simply not necessary. In fact they can be detrimental (if used in an unbalanced fashion) to our development.
