Today I enjoyed Not Just Cute Weekend Reads and found the recomended article Kindergarten has become the New First Grade most interesting. If you care about parenting, education, childhood and preschoolers, please read it!
Now, my only question is… Is it a coincidence that one of the experts quoted in this Chicago Tribune article is called Loveless?
“I think even an advantaged child who attends a play-based kindergarten pays some sort of price because that is a portion of the day that could be going for cognitive development but isn’t.”
I mean, what price will we be paying as society if we deprive children from playing?? Oh! Love, come back to our hearts and let children live their childhood in peace!
