The following article and the video within the article really made me think about our ideas of the traditional childhood and a modern version of childhood.
A very compelling point to me in this article was one specific line:
“Is running around on the lawn educational? Every part of a child’s life can’t be held up to that standard.”
Which to me is something that I never thought about. I would always error on the side that anything that is done NOT in front of a screen was much more valuable when compared to screen time. Asking the question, “Can every part of a child’s life be held up to that standard?” is something I will have to keep in my mind.
I would LOVE to read some of your responses to this article.
