DeBenedet, Anthony T.
Adult Nonfiction GV1203 .D42 2010
Summary: Everywhere you look, physical play--what some might call "roughhousing"--is being marginalized. Gym classes are getting shorter. Recess periods are beingnbsp;eliminated. Some new schools don't even have playgrounds. Is it any wondernbsp;children retreat to "virtual horseplay" via video games? But Drs. Anthony T. DeBenedet and Lawrence J. Cohen are here to shake thingsnbsp;up--literally! With The Art of Roughhousing , they show how rough-and-tumble playnbsp;can nurture close connections, solve behavior problems, boost confidence, and more.nbsp;Drawing inspiration from gymnastics, martial arts, ballet, traditional sports, and evennbsp;animal behavior, the authors present dozens of illustrated activities for children andnbsp;parents to enjoy together--everything from the "Sumo Dead Lift" to the "Roguenbsp;Dumbo." These delightful games are fun, free, and contain many surprising healthnbsp;benefits for parents. So put down those electronic games and get ready to rumble!
