(from the Alberta Family Wellness Initiative)
If you go to any community in Alberta and ask around about what matters to people, a neighbourly concern for the wellbeing of others is near the top of the list. We know, because we asked.
And if you ask about the wellbeing of kids and the importance of interacting with them, you get funny looks. Like, “Sure, of course it’s important to spend time with kids. Isn’t it obvious?”
But new research is shedding scientific light on what most of us always suspected from the start: playing with young kids isn’t just a fun way to pass the time. It actually changes their brains in ways that affect their health for a lifetime. And that has consequences for our families, our communities, and future generations.
