Why Play Matters: The Huffington Post hosts a panel discussion on play

In this April 17 edition of the Third Metric series, HuffPost Live explores the importance of play with KaBOOM! CEO, Darell Hammond. From playgrounds to our own backyards, how do we let go and embrace the art of playing more?

Hosted by HuffPost Live's Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani, Darell was joined by Christina Ramirez, a mother and former preschool teach, and Dr. Vasco Lopes, a child psychologist from Child Mind Institute. The group discussed how cities and communities, in addition to parents and caregivers, can play a key role in creating the opportunities for kids to experience a balance of play that they need to thrive.
