Many parents say they want to give their children a better life than they had and want to make certain their children grow up to be good adults. How can that happen? Studies have shown that “letting kids be kids” is one of the best ways to do just that and it’s been shown that his can help your children grow up to be sensitive to the needs of others.
What does “letting kids be kids” mean? Bottom line, it means let them run, jump and play.

Children need to “develop their own self-identity” before they can understand how to correctly care for an empathize with others, the study finds.
