Children love to play when they are young, but the urge lessens as they grow into teenagers. While they retain their imaginations, it can be hard as you get older to lose yourself in the playtime. Because of this, some children are sad about the thought of getting older, as they think it means they will lose playtime with their friends. You should protect playtime for your young children and let them play freely while they still can.
