Play Freeze Tag
Running, jumping, skipping, and playing are all important to creating a well-rounded, resilient child. It's great character-building for a kid to learn collaboration and give-and-take with others. In addition, it's good for kids to sometimes "lose" at something (aka - getting tagged out). Resiliency and collaboration skills are foundational skills in any STEM career. Think of what Smith and Wesson or the Wright Brothers would have produced (or rather, how long it would have taken or of what quality) if they didn't learn how to work together as children and learn how to lose and try again. Freeze tag may sound like "just a kids' game," but it has so much more intrinsic value than that.
Anywhere outside...that is safe!

I love the alternate ways to play in the link above. Seriously do check it out.
Let the kids resolve their own issues. It's a healthier way to parent (and develops better long-term skills) than jumping in to solve problems for them.
