No less than any adult!!!

Teen develops test that detects cancer (WJZ)
Below is the link for some great news!  A fifteen year old high school student created a test to detect Pancreatic Cancer at a very early stage.  

This news is the proof for us not to underestimate kids.  Just because they are younger, less experienced and less educated than us, the parents... they are nothing but LESS than us!  Let's trust our kids and let them follow their passion...  The results will be wonderful. And here's a great example :)

We all need to play :)

Playing is a need.  It doesn't sound as important as eating, sleeping, walking........  But it is a need as well.
Here are a bunch of very creative people who acted upon this need.
And my question is: what do you do to play and have fun with your kids? I mean not just once but regularly?
