Have you ever stepped back to watch what really goes on when your children play? Play is how children explore the world around them, communicating deep feelings, getting close to those they care about, working through stressful situations, and simply blowing off steam.
Thats why “playful parenting” is so important and so successful in building strong, close bonds between parents and children. Through play we join our kids in their world – and help them to:
Express and understand complex emotions
Break through shyness, anger, and fear
Empower themselves and respect diversity
Play their way through sibling rivalry
Cooperate without power struggles
