Study & Play
Playing is studying and learning can be a game. It is, however, not always so. It depends on the point of view. This goes for both children and adults. Children should be allowed to be children as long as possible, even in old age.
6 year old kids which are put in front of a desk for hours will be in a state of shock unless there is some amount of play involved in the learning process.
The problems of the school system have more often than not been that play has been so completely taken out of the curriculum that there is no more joy or purpose of learning left for the child.
Children feel most at home in nature, and they must learn most about nature by observing it carefully. Outdoor learning is gaining popularity here in this country but has been practiced for ages in many cultural communities. Bad weather can be addressed with the right clothing, and it should not hinder anybody from going out to play or out to explore the world.
