Leave those kids alone

There Will Be Games

 Gamers like to reminisce about the games they played as children. They remember the happy hours spent with siblings, or neighbor kids, of best buddies. Gamer parents  tell us about the games they play with kids. They like to recommend games that BOTH you and your child will enjoy together. But do gamer parents ever just leave leave kids alone and let them play with other kids? 

There was some recent study done that showed a lot of kids weren't able to organize pick-up games of kick ball, or hide and seek on their own. Their play had been supervised and organized and facilitated and coordinated by adults for their whole life, so they didn't know how to do do it on their own. I wonder if gamer parents ever just hand a new box in shrink to their kid and say, "Here, go have fun," and just let the kids figure it out for themself, like we did when we were kids.
