The recent trend has been toward structuring the young child's time with organized sports, music lessons, and so on. This reflects the mistaken belief that these things are more "meaningful" than play, when exactly the opposite is true.

I think there needs to be an even balance between the 2 because too much of one thing isn't good.

I agree. I good balance of the two is what I'm planning on for Emily. Since we're country people there won't really be any people for her to easily play with so I have to make sure I involve her in activities so she can be with people here own age and learn at the same time (sharing, team work, etc).
