Playing outside

Earlier today, I took my two girls to play outside. As it wasn't too cold, and the kids next door were going out to play, I didn't see the problem. My husband stayed inside with our little guy. Figured it was better to keep him inside. Then, after a little while, my youngest daughter wanted to come inside. Around that time, my little guy started to get hungry, so my husband and I switched. I came in with our two youngest, and he stayed outside with our eldest.

My youngest was outside for about an hour, and our eldest for almost two. I think that it was about that time. I didn't really keep track.

Either way, I'm glad that they played outside. If they want to play outside, and if the weather permits, I don't have an issue with it. I think it's good for them to play outside, and get some fresh air. It's better than spending the day inside watching TV. I hope that they continue to want to play outside for a little. I think it's good for them.

It's better to have them running off their energy outside .

I totally agree with you, it's great to have them out playing.

You can't keep children cooked up inside. If they want to be outside, it needs to be encouraged. It's great that you and your husband have time to spend with them.

What facilities do you have for your kids to play outside?

I certainly agree. They do need it.

It was a nice change. I'm glad that they were outside for a little while. It felt good.

I agree. If they want to be outside, why stop them? Especially if it's a nice day.

We have an open area outside our apartment that they can play in. It's sort of a backyard. There's a park not too far but it's covered in snow. They were happy just playing by our place.

I think the outside activity is beneficial to the child. They need fresh air.

Absolutely. It's why I'm glad the weather was nice, and we were finally able to be outside for a little. Hopefully, this is the start of us being able to be outside almost everyday.

Yes it is better, so they can really socialized and it is also part of exercise, many muscles are being so tired when watching television, than playing outside. And their minds is also being built and alert. God bless. I think you are having a great time... it is so cool to have your own kids and just fill them with love with your husband. God bless you all of Jesus wall of protection, Amen.

It really is nice to see them having fun outside. It's good for them on several different levels.
