Today’s parents are under more pressure than ever to ensure that their kids grow up to be successful adults. As a result, kids are often overscheduled and juggling a million activities both in and outside of school, which creates a lot of stress and leaves very little downtime to relax and play.

The AAP recommends play for children to buffer toxic stress, build parental relationships, and improve executive functioning.
