Your Child's Brain on PLAY with Mrs. A, Aug. 13, 2012

Were you up early watching the Olympic Closing Ceremonies? If you think about it, the root of sports is PLAY. How did Michael Phelps first start swimming? It may have been splashing in the backyard kiddie pool. And Gaby Douglas? Could have been on a playground swing or monkey bars. Rosie McLennan may have jumped on the furniture and Usain Bolt's mother may have had to give reminders about not running in the house.

Adult sports evolve from children's play. Join the show today for some issues about PLAY. Take a magic school bus trip thru a brain on PLAY and explore some issues:

  • outside play time,
  • independent play,
  • letting kids take risks,
  • should boys be allowed to play with dolls
  • dress-up time,

and more, including PLAY fun in every room in the house. Learn and Play with Mrs. A.
