I Just Want to Play!: Dedicated to My Son, Chase
By: Nikkita Bailes
About the Book
All children should be treated with care, love, and understanding. Our children are just small people who crave attention, but it sometimes comes out in the wrong way. Adults should mold them, actively listen, and connect more so they won’t be lost and influenced by negative people or situations. Education should be fun and exciting at this young age. If kids are hyperactive, why is medication the first solution to the problem? If kids learn slowly or have a short attention span they shouldn't be labeled, categorized, or treated less than. “I Just Want to Play!”, encourages everyone to listen a little harder to understand what children are telling us even if it is not through verbal communication.
