by Megan on September 1, 2010

“The very brain circuits that are activated during play are also activated during joyous, happy moments in our lives, and the more you exercise a brain circuit, the stronger it gets. So letting kids have a good time in play is one of the healthiest things you can do for them.”

-Daniel Goldman, Ph.D. author of Emotional Intelligence and Social Intelligence
