The Value of Unstructured Time

Heike Larson has an excellent article on The Value of Unstructured Time (Or: What to Do Instead of TV).

According to Larson “children need boredom. The self-initiated effort to solve boredom leads to creative thinking. Children benefit from having to find a way to entertain themselves, to just hang out with siblings and friends and make up games, time to play, to build, to draw, time to think and dream.”

I need to requote that because it is such a brilliant statement:”The self-initiated effort to solve boredom leads to creative thinking.”
