Outdoor games are not just for fun and entertainment. They promote your child’s physical growth and development, and they foster social skills too, as children mingle and play with their friends. During play time, kids learn the essence of teamwork, friendship and sports.
That said it's natural for parents to worry whenever their child is out of sight. But ... kids need outdoor games and the company of their peers as well. To ease your worry, you can encourage their games in your backyard, right where you can see them.
Instead of your child going over to his friend’s place, encourage your child and his playmates to play at your home. That includes providing them with a variety of outdoor toys for children and enough space for them to play. This way you won't have to worry where your child is, and you can supervise their games and the toys they are playing with at the same time.
