Play: It’s Serious Business! (Presentation)
In the past 30 years, there has been an ever-increasing emphasis upon structured activity and entertainment. Unstructured play has been devalued and essentially “scheduled out” of the lives of children. Is this a positive course? What are the implications of continuing in this direction? This presentation addresses these questions and examines possible strategies for consideration by recreation professionals and community leaders.
