Entertaiment is a wide category of activities for the enjoyment or amusement of others. This can include anything from sports to theatre to concerts. It is sometimes abbreviated to entmt. You might see this abbreviation on a flier or in industry news publications where space is limited. It is also frequently used in short hand note taking. Entertaiment for children is important as it helps them develop motor skills needed for music and sports, teaches them social interaction, and provides a way to channel their energy (8). It also helps them prepare for adult responsibilities like child rearing (7). It is also a source of entertainment for adults (3).
