Post We Loved
Here’s an excerpt:
“Families need to regroup and simply have unstructured time together – to play, to talk, to inadvertently create the small instances that go into the family memory bank. It is the little things that tend to bond families, and these often occur during unstructured time.
Try to be clear about whether your own needs or anxieties about your child’s achievement are fueling a desire to over-schedule activities.” (Source)
