Slow days a way of giving

I love the idea of Children’s Week. It is a national celebration of children’s rights, talents and citizenship, held in the last week of October to coincide with Universal Children’s Day. Each year the theme of Children’s Week highlights a particular Children’s right.

This year, the theme was based on the United Nation’s Convention on the Rights of the Child Article 31, and can be summed up as children having the right to relax, play and to join in a wide range of leisure activities.

This theme is music to my ears. I’ll break it down and explain why something so simple is so important. If you aren’t currently raising kids, “the right to relax” might seem like an unnecessary statement. But any of us in the business of raising kids know that they (and we) struggle to get enough relax time.
