Let Them Play, Let Them Struggle, Let Them Learn

"The adults observing the children look over at me with worried looks. I instruct them to observe but stay close and hidden among the trees. Secretly, I’m wondering if we should intervene now, but something tells me to wait."

An excerpt from Why adults have to stop trying so darn hard to control how children play by Valerie Strauss, The Washington Post, December 11th, 2015.  An oldie but a goodie about why we should supervise our children's play but understand that there is a balance between supporting and hovering.
