Playfulness is the foundation for strengthening families in our communities. In order to understand this, we must know the intrinsic value of play and its potential for deepening relationships. But most importantly, if we are going to be successful advocates for play in the lives of children and families, we need to be in touch with our own playful selves. In this talk, Lisa G. puts forth a passionate invitation to prioritize play.
