Children in Urban Areas Struggle with Limited Playgrounds During Summer Break

City kids lack playgrounds, stay at home surfing internet, studying

While summer break is typically a time for children in many countries to play and relax, Vietnamese children often find themselves engaged in learning various skills and preparing for exams during this period.

Parents, especially those in big cities and lower-income families, express concerns over the lack of recreational spaces for children and the pressure they face to constantly study.

The shortage of playgrounds in urban areas has been a long-standing issue, exacerbated by rapid urbanization and a focus on maximizing profits in real estate development.

Without designated places to play, children turn to electronic devices, private tutoring, and academic pursuits, leading to stress and behavioral problems.

Concerned educators refer to summer as the “third semester” due to the heavy academic load students carry and highlight the importance of play for children’s holistic development.

Despite regulations emphasizing children’s right to play and warning against excessive study pressures, enforcement remains lax.

The lack of playgrounds in both urban and rural areas reflects a broader issue of inadequate recreational infrastructure for children.

Architects and educators alike point out the need for more parks, schools, and cultural spaces that prioritize children’s well-being and development.

In some cases, promised playground areas are repurposed for commercial activities, further limiting children’s outdoor play opportunities.

Ultimately, the lack of space for play poses a significant challenge to children’s physical and mental health, requiring greater attention and action from authorities and communities.
