Delving into the child psyche, The American Academy of Pediatrics has enabled a detailed report that is a stark reminder to parents, to just let the child be! The report reiterates that kids need freedom to play in gay abandon that does not follow any specific pattern or structure.

According to experts, it is the parents who need to be blamed for couch potato kids. In today’s competitive scenario, kids are pulled into the vortex of stress, unwittingly, with subtle demands of perfection, laid down by parents. It is uncommon to find children these days, taking a walk in the garden, observing plants, and butterflies and just being close to nature.
