Guided play means letting your kids start to play as they naturally would, then engaging in that play with them — interjecting questions, comments and explanations to help your little ones get more out of playtime. Here's how:

I don't approve of "guided" play.  Playtime should be just that play.  A few minutes for their brains to wind down and relax.  If adults interfere and "guide" the play, then all you really have is "fun" learning time.
A child's mind is always learning, whether the play be "free" or "guided" and more and more studies show that kids need this break from stress just like adults do.  How relaxing would your lunch -break at work be if your boss came in and asked you a bunch of work-related questions while you tried to eat?
Not very, I'm thinking...

Confined by the oppressive summer heat, a single-minded mother, and the limits of girlhood, a young girl’s outing to the corner store stirs an unexpected self-realization. Watch KLRU’s “The Scar” now, then vote & share. Brought to you as part of the PBS Online Film Festival. http://www.pbs.org/filmfestival/2016/scar/ #PBSolff
Confined by the oppressive summer heat, a single-minded mother, and the limits of girlhood, a young girl's outing to the corner store stirs an unexpected self-realization. THE SCAR is a narrative short that begs the question: Amongst the clatter of a world that tells little girls who and how to be in the world, can we entrust them to make their own decisions, even if they may be the 'wrong' ones?

Life should be easy .. easy to get a good edcutaion, easy to not be disrespected for you race or origin, easy to get a decent job, easy to get enough good food and clean water. I don't see any GOOD reason it shouldn't be.

+David E Maybe you should increase your vocabulary to better explain the real issues. It's not racist, it's asserting an observation, that if you are not welcome, do not force yourself on anyone. It's not the People of Color with the prejudices, xenophobic attitude, it's the Caucasian. You must be a Caucasian, you all blame and falsely accuse others for your actions.
