Our children hardly play outside on their own in their neighborhoods, and they are suffering in many ways as a result. This book describes how we parents can give our children a life of neighborhood play, every day. This is a social problem that can't be solved by each family on its own. Neighborhoods must somehow come together to change their cultures.
In Playborhood: Turn Your Neighborhood Into a Place for Play, you'll find inspiring stories of innovative communities throughout the US and Canada that have successfully created vibrant neighborhood play lives for their children. You'll also get a comprehensive set of step-by-step solutions to turn around your family and neighborhood cultures, so that your kids can spend less time in front of screens and in adult-supervised activities, and more time engaging in joyful neighborhood play.
