It’s not uncommon for me to hear: “Mrs. Robinson, all my children want to do is play…play play play!" or “This child just plays too much!”
For this week’s episode we are going to look at the work of childhood – Play.
Play is an essential part of childhood and when children don’t play it can have an effect on their physical, social and emotional development. So although as parents, we do want to know that our children are serious when it comes to their school work, in this week's epiode I’m going to shed some light on why it is so important that children play and the 6 different types of play that they should be encouraged to do.
