I have a son who just finished his first year of school and I'm wondering if he has enough unstructured play with other kids (aside from his sister).
We mostly don't arrange play dates on weekends - he had a handful but we'd mostly do them after school. We probably had one a week.
I wonder how often other kids of a similar age have play dates? Whether the parents arrange them or whether the kids can just pop next door to a neighbour's house or even just play in the school ground after school?
