This piece about over-scheduling kids reminds us that the best way to encourage our children’s creativity is to provide them with free play time. I’d add that over-scheduling kids also impacts parents’ creativity and well-being. Constantly shuttling children from one activity to the next leaves us with little time/energy to engage in creative thinking (or any type of thinking that doesn’t involve our kids’ schedules). Just like kids, parents need time to think independently and creatively!
