Let the Children Play

Recommended Posts

Drove by a ball field the other day and saw about ten kids of various younger ages (7 to 12 at a guess) playing baseball. Awesome! Thinketh I. As we got closer it looked like the kids weren’t too into the game.  Got closer, there was an adult pitching to the kids. Saw this today:

Always played outside as a kid.

We had the proverbial sandlot diagonally across the street from my house, always full of kids playing something.

When I mis-behaved my punishment was my mother sat me on a chair in front of our living room window and I would have to watch all the other kids playing outside. Not being allowed to play outside with my friends was worse than any spanking (yes, there were spankings back then!).
