Help! My Kids are Wasting Their Whole Summer!

Is it a waste of time when kids look like they’re wasting time?

Interesting question. I write this while looking out my window watching a couple of kids playing with a toy car. Before that, two other kids were chasing a dog. I’m sure a lot of older kids are inside on their phones. And here I am, online. (As are you!) Is there a difference between wasting time and spending time doing something kind of enjoyable that is mindless or unproductive? Is all time wasted if there’s nothing to show for it?

That’s what I’m thinking about in my “Ask Lenore” piece today at Let Grow. Check it out by clicking here!
