Second Childhood Prescription for Menopause and Midlife: More Recess

Saskia Ishii RN commented to me on the last blog entry - her comment was so inspiring that I asked her to be our first guest blogger. Here are her thoughts on the necessity of recess .
When my 3 children were very young, after picking them up from elementary school, we would come home, have a snack, and talk about their day.
I d always ask the same question: So, how was school today? Their answers would always be the same: we didn t have enough recess. It admittedly irritated me that we were paying handsomely for their private tuition, in triplicate, and that the measuring stick of whether the day was a good one or not such a good one was based on the amount of play time they had.
Then one day I remember thinking to myself, These kids are absolutely brilliant!
