Children Running Wild and Free?

For many, summer brings to mind memories of going outside in the morning and coming in at night tired and dirty from a long day of playing. Parents of today, however, are frequently caught in the mainstream culture that says a child's day, including their play, must be structured, adult organized, and directed. Praise the Lord! Not all parents have been entangled in the web of popular opinion. Simple Mom blog shares an article that hit my face like a breath of gloriously fresh air. If you want to find out more about the joy and freedom of allowing children to play on their own, you can enjoy the article here. Feel free to join the discussion in the comments at the bottom of the post. As soon as you're done, head outside for some free play time of your own.  Here are some fun drinks to enjoy while you're out there.
