Lack of play hurting child development, especially in poor countries | News.com.au: FIVE-year-old Hennock loves to run and has dreams of being a helicopter pilot. And despite living in one of the poorest countries on earth, he's got one advantage over many kids in similar situations.
He has time to run and play outside.
A lack of quality time and space for children to be able to play is severely impacting their development, according to international aid agency Plan Australia.
The situation is made worse in the developing world through war, poverty and natural disasters.
