Let’s face it. Playtime changes when our kids become tweens and teens.
Gone are the days of playground dates and exciting afternoons spent building with lincoln logs and magnetic blocks.
But the days of play aren’t gone. They have just changed.
Playtime with older kids looks more like getting out of the house; seeing friends; and spending time with parents who are willing to listen, talk, and enter their world.
We must continue to make space for playtime with our older kids. Though it is probably time to stop calling it “playtime.” HA!
