Why Are We Making Ourselves and Our Kids So Busy???

I recently read an article entitled “The Disease of Being Busy“.  As a parent and a teacher I see all too often a child being over scheduled with lessons, extra study sessions, involved in more extra curricular activities to count, often times leaving them overly exhausted and missing out on those unstructured play/hangout times necessary to learn various social and problem solving skills and to be imaginative and creative with their friends!  Sometimes I feel the pressure to jump on the over scheduled bandwagon for myself and my children, but this article is a great reminder why it’s so important to say NO to being busy.
