A Case For More Play

I saw this great TEDx video on the importance of play for children that I wanted to share with you all. I thought it was very interesting hear his thoughts on a potential correlation between decreases in play and increases in mental health issues that children and adolescents experience. I would be very interested in reading the research he cited and think that his talk could spark some more in depth research on the topic. I also was glad that he ended his presentation by talking about what we could do to help children. What are your thoughts? Do you agree or disagree with his ideas? What do you think about a link between play and mental health?
