74. What’s the big deal about blocks?

Blocks are just perfect in our digital age!

They are more than a baby toy but a toy that grows with our under 5 children.

Today I have an interview all about the big deal about blocks.

Empowered by Play was founded in 2009 by teacher-turned-activist Geralyn
Bywater McLaughlin, M.Ed. A classroom teacher for 19 years, she is also a mother of seven-year-old twin boys. Geralyn became a play advocate in response to her classroom observations of children who were forced to grow up too quickly in the current commercialized, plugged-in culture.

She is also a contributing writer to So Sexy So Soon: The New Sexualized Childhood and What Parents Can Do to Protect Their Kids by Diane Levin and Jean Kilbourne.
