Kids Need Downtime Too


".. too much activity can create stress for both kids and adults "

Wellness Tip: Planned activities can help kids learn, grow, and develop. But too much activity can create stress for both kids and adults. When kids' entire days are planned, rushing from one activity to the next, there is no time to for them to just be what they are - kids. 

Giving kids free time to make their own choices allows them to manage their own time, find ways to deal with stress, learn to be creative, and gain independence by making their own choices. 

Parents can decrease planned activities and keep books, writing implements, movies, or other activities on hand.
