THE DAILY BELLELLI: The Power of Play by David Elkind

Although there are fewer spaces for contemporary children to play, they find them wherever they can. Children's play in the confined space set aside for it by adults often differs from the play that goes on when children are in open spaces and free from adult supervision." David Elkind
