Down time- kids

What do your kids do for down time?
Do you think they get enough?

This is the battle I have in my head right now.

Do my kids (mainly Mr Magoo) get enough down time.

Time to do something, be creative where there is no pressure

Mr Magoo lives in a world of anxiety
and he puts a lot of pressure on himself to get it right.
So much pressure that his fear of failure is out of control.
Which in turn leads him to be afraid to try.

He is 6 years old and becomes too anxious to try
And usually just shuts down.

So that is why I feel it is so important and vital for kids to get plenty of down time.
Time they can spend with no pressure to perform.

This may be easy and come naturally for some kids
But for others it needs to be pushed   a bit.

Do your kids get enough down time?
