Families on the Go: Active or Hyperactive?
Villaire, Ted
Our Children, v28 n5 p4-5 Mar 2003
Discusses why families are so overscheduled, explaining that when children spend time by themselves doing nothing in particular, they are relaxing and learning how to be alone and enjoy their own company. When children do not have time to relax, there can be damaging stress-related consequences. Suggestions to help families spend more time together include planning regular family nights and cooking and eating a meal together. (SM)
