Doctors Should Prescribe Play Time For Kids

06 Oct, 2018

BOSTON(CBS) A new report is recommending kids do something critical for healthy development play.

The report ’The Power of Play’ from the American Academy of Paediatrics recommends all paediatricians tell children that playing with parents and peers is a critical part of healthy development, fundamental for learning life skills and reducing stress.

Dr. Michael Yogman of Mount Auburn Hospital authored the report which shows playtime has decreased significantly in the past 15 years, while screen time has increased. And about 30 percent of kindergarten children don’t go out for recess.

’Play is really brain-building because it has all kinds of effects on brain structure and function,’he said. ’Executive function skills, learning to persist on a task, learning to solve problems, of learning to be flexible about how they are learning things.’

Play can also strengthen the relationship between a parent and a child.



Spending time outdoors could help your child’s eyesight-BBC Report

10 Aug, 2018

Kids seem to spend endless hours on smartphones, games consoles, computers and tablets these days.

There has been a massive rise around the globe in short-sightedness - or myopia. The main factor seems to be a lack of exposure to direct sunlight, because children who study a lot and who use computers or smartphones or tablet computers a lot have less opportunity to run around outside and are less exposed to sunshine and because of that seem to be at more risk of developing short-sightedness.

These kids are being pushed with very intensive education from a very young age and spend a lot of time indoors studying everything close up and very little time outdoors. Therefore the concern is that all close work - like playing with the iPad and iPhone - carries the potential that it could make them more short-sighted.

The best thing to do, say the experts is to get children playing outside as much as possible. Protective of myopia development is time outdoors - sport and leisure outdoors are protective of eyesight.



School Playground Boosts Children’s Development-BBC Report

03 Aug, 2018

“There is good evidence that making changes to school playgrounds leads to an increase in children's levels of physical activity,” the report said.

The study conducted by BBC found that school playgrounds are one of the best ways for increasing children's levels of physical activity. They were also linked to a range of improvements in academic skills, attitudes and behaviour, and to improved social skills, improved social relations between different ethnic groups, and better adjustment to school life.

Various forms of intervention have been shown to give this outcome, including changes to marking, the addition of play equipment, making available games equipment (such as balls and bats) and the introduction of loose materials such as scrap and recycled office equipment.

New Delhi: The Delhi high court pulled up the Delhi government, various civic bodies, including DDA and the municipal corporations, for converting playgrounds in residential areas into “ornamental parks“ and multi-level parking.

The poser by a bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar came during hearing of a petition filed by a Defence Colony resident who alleged that several parks in the area were being converted into ornamental parks or parking lots, robbing children of valuable space to play.

Where will the children go to play?“ the bench remarked, while directing the authorities, including the Delhi government and the DDA, to file affidavits about the status of available parks in the city and to also indicate whether there was sufficient green area and lung space for citizens.



CHILDREN NEED TO PLAY MORE TO GAIN WORK SKILLS Report by BBC

17 Jul, 2018

A recent study conducted by BBC has proved that today’s kids need to play more in order to develop work skills and to live a better life. The researchers advocate creative and free play using unstructured play equipment in order to improve children’s mental abilities.

Dr Peter Gray, a US psychologist and professor at Boston College, has argued that the fact children play less has led to an increase in childhood mental disorders including anxiety and depression, as well as a decline in empathy.

The report asks parents to rethink before occupying their kids by giving smart phones and video games. Child specialists argue that returning to real play is the panacea for majority of psychological and behavioural irregularities of our kids.
