I am very excited to be participating in the series: 28 Days of Play, hosted by Rachel Cedar of YouPlus2Parenting. Rachel is asking the intriguing and maybe even uncomfortable question: Do you play with your children?

Please join me today over at Rachel’s to read what I have been too reluctant to have ever shared with a parenting group.

You can also link to the series through an article about 28 Days of Play on the NBC/Today Show Website. While you are there, check out some of the other amazing writers who will be joining in 28 Days of Play. And check out Rachel’s parenting coaching from the heart.

I would also love to hear from you. Do you play with your children?

    Beautiful, Pamela! I know this has been huge for you… And I’m not sure I ever mastered it. Maybe that’s what grandchildren are for?

    The nature of playing with my children has changed now that they are 11 and 13. Play now consists of showing a REAL interest in their friends, interests, and games, even trying my hand at some of the video games (that make my 48 year old eyes dizzy). We still play board games at times. I think the most important thing is to remind them to keep playing. As their school and after-school responsibilities change, it’s getting harder for them to play creatively in real (non-virtual) space.

  • A thoughtful, touching and honest piece of writing Pamela. I don’t have children, but could feel your despair through your writing.
