Entertaiment and Family Life



Entertaiment is about more than just having fun – it’s also an important part of family life, a way to make special memories together. Children’s entertainment can teach them important social skills, prepare them for adult responsibilities like child rearing or even help them develop motor skills (1,2). For adults, it may inspire a new work in another medium – Scheherazade, the famous story from the Persian professional storytelling tradition, inspired Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel to write orchestral works, Pasolini to make a film adaptation and a video game to be played on modern computers.
