parenting advice about adult play dates

Here’s my challenge. Schedule at least three adult play dates next.  Make two about just for you playing; and the third playing with an old friend or finding new ones. Just do it, please. Lots of stuff people say  we can “Just do” cannot be done by all or even most of us. .  But scheduling some adult play dates, if you can’t just do that, your life is out of control; reorder your priorities, maybe even think about counseling or therapy.

Many of the fun activities suggested by parenting gurus to do with your child, e can be done with your inner child alone.  Some  make  good ideas for adult play dates.

DISCLAIMER: FORGIVE MY GRAMMATICAL ERRORS FOR I HAVE DYSGRAPHIA.  If you need perfect posts, you will not find them here. Dysgraphia is a not well known learning disability and means that sometimes my sentence structure is not that easy to follow or I make other errors. Still, most people understand me. All of my books are professionally edited, but not all of my blog posts are.  If this troubles you, feel free to read elsewhere.  If you persevere, you are practicing kindness by lifting my spirits for that means you find what I say helpful and that is one of my missions. Kindness always repays those who spread it.
