6 Good Reasons to Skip Overscheduling Your Kid (PHOTOS)

Big Kid

In the era of the "overscheduled child," it’s refreshing to be reminded of how simple life can be when we allow for it. These images by photographer and mom Kristin Zecchinelli make me nostalgic for the days when every minute wasn’t filled with play dates, soccer games, music lessons, and dance recitals.

Free time is becoming less and less free as my kids get older, but these images encourage me to slow us all down a bit and build in some time for nothing but simple “childish” pleasures. 

Do your kids have lots of free time for play or do you find your family overscheduled?
