When it comes to a child’s development and happiness, in this show we’ve talked about how important it is for kids to eat healthy nutritious meals; how reading, writing and math are very important, but so are the arts; but I think this is the very first time talked about the importance of play for a child… 

Play is crucial for kids to relieve toxic stress, restore normalcy and stay active and healthy. 

To talk about the importance of play on a kid’s life, we recently invited Ellen Krouss, Associate Director of Corporate Partnerships at KaBOOM!, a national non-profit dedicated to giving all kids – particularly those growing up in poverty in America – the childhood they deserve filled with balanced and active play, so they can thrive. 

We were also joined by Leslie Parpart, Director of Community Relations for the Carmax Foundation, an organization designed to enrich the communities where their associates live and work.
