Fifth sentence of page 123:

It isn’t even the activity that seems to matter.

Next three sentences:

It’s just the time spent enjoying it. While it is tempting to promote active play as a method for improving children’s physical health, it also seems important to emphasize that this is not the only reason, nor even the best reason for active play. Physicians Hillary Burdette and Robert Whitaker put it best when they said, “Play has the potential to improve all aspects of children’s well-being: physical, emotional, social, and cognitive. We argue that the current emphasis on increasing physical activity in young children to address the problem of obesity, while an important public health agenda, might be more successful if the exposure (physical activity or exercise) were promoted with different language (play) and if a different set of outcomes were emphasized (aspects of child well-being other than physical health).”

I tag anyone who wants to answer 🙂
