Week 2 of 4K Virtual Learning
It is a good time to be reminded of the words of David Elkind, PhD. He writes, "Play, like love and work, is an ambiguous term—with meaning that changes over the course of the human life cycle. The play, love, and work of children are simply different from those of adults. We easily understand the new side of “love” that emerges in adolescence, and that the adult concept of work—earning one’s own living—does not apply to children. Yet when it comes to children’s play, we tend to think of it in adult terms—as the opposite of work, engaged in for its own sake."
