Do You Really Play With Your Kids?

Parents spend time with their children, but do they really interact with them? On trips to the park, do you chat with the other moms or dig in the sand, climb up the play structure and slip down the slide with your kids? When it comes to board games or even make believe, are you present or an active participant?

I play with my girl more than most parents I think, but that's because I really don't have a big family or a lot of friends with kids. She has 18 cousins on her dad's side of the family, so I don't worry about her not socializing enough, but I feel bad that I'm her only 'playmate' when we're at home. I LOVE playing on the playground with her, but it is embarrassing if there are lots of people. I only do it if there aren't any kids for her to play with.
