Here is a quick preview of Dr. Peter Gray’s talk from the Positive Parenting Conference 2018.
In this talk titled Why You NEED to Give Your Child Ample Time for Free Play (Backed by Science), Dr. Gray and I discuss:
- What Free Play is and why kids need it
- Role of free play in learning, and impact of schools
- An alternative to consider if your child is struggling in school
I thoroughly enjoyed recording this talk. Dr. Gray is a joy to speak with and the ideas in this talk will give you pause and make your think long and hard at what childhood has come to be these days. Be sure to listen to this talk – you kids will thank you! (PS: Dr. Gray is the author of a widely used introductory psychology textbook, now in its seventh edition – so he sure knows what he is talking about!)
