Give your children unstructured time to play freely.
Free play is absolutely essential to a child’s mental health—when children are involved in activities that are freely chosen and directed by them, they undergo healthy psychological development.
Research indicates that free play helps children learn, develop, and perfect new skills that build competence, master anxiety (i.e. help them build the capacity to cope with their environment), enhance the strength of their ego, and fuel their investment in life.
