In today’s world where is a safe place for children to play? Experts say playgrounds are crucially important to the physical development of children.
It was the playground where Baby Boomer children met their friends to chat on top of the slide and or compete on the swings. Not Facebook. It was the playground where castles were made and children escaped from witches on the slide. It was the playground were children mimicked the latest television series of I SPY or the Avengers. It was the playground where they tossed a ball and ran the bases. It was a place for imagination, exercise and a community of fun.
The editor-in-chief of Parents Magazine, Dana Points, said that “it’s so important for communities to create a safe place for children to play. It may look like fun and games, but playgrounds and what unfolds in them are more important to our kids and communities than many of us realize.”
Experts say that playgrounds are crucially important to the physical development of America’s youth, and provide a safe space on which they can exercise their growing bodies.
We cannot stress the importance of eating healthy enough, certainly,” said Dr. Michael Omidi, co-founder of The. “However, it is becoming increasingly obvious that the lack of physical exercise in children is the main culprit in the startling rise of childhood obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and all other types of preventable medical conditions.” –
