We can just watch from a distance to make sure that their safety is not compromised. We as parents can then also spend time with one another to foster greater friendship among neighbors and at the same time allow our children to have a great time together.
Children need a well-balanced lifestyle just as we adults do. We should allow our children to spend a good amount of time to play outdoors, be it sports or unstructured free play which will help them to be physically fit with better focus and attention. This in turn will help in their cognitive development and academic achievement. They will also grow up to be more holistic individuals with healthy bodies, minds and souls.
