There are so many great books out there about parenting and play that are better researched, better written, and more enlightening. A few recommendations:
- Playful Parenting or The Art of Roughhousing by Lawrence J. Cohen
- Simplicity Parenting by Kim John Payne (making room for real play instead of scheduled activities, the power of fewer toys, etc)
- Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louv (importance of free-form, imaginative play in nature)
