How child-friendly is your neighborhood and what could you do to make it more so?
Do you know most of your neighbors by name? Do kids in your neighborhood play outside together in mixed-age groups? Or do families mostly stay inside or in their own fenced yard? This week’s Mom Enough discussion with author Mike Lanza will challenge you to think about what you could do to build a stronger sense of community and engage your children in more open creative play all at the same time. Marti and Erin have their own stories to tell of how much they appreciate their close-knit neighborhoods and what has helped maintain those connections across the years.
How do you and the other families in your neighborhood stay connected with each other? How free are children to play beyond their own houses or apartments or yards? Share your thoughts in our REPLY space below!
