“Quite simply, play offers parents a wonderful opportunity to engage fully with their children.”
The American Academy of Pediatrics
See the world through their child's eyes
When parents observe their children in play or join with them in child-driven play, they are given a unique opportunity to see the world from their child’s vantage point as the child navigates a world perfectly created just to fit his or her needs.
Build enduring bonds with their child
The interactions that occur through play tell children that parents are fully paying attention to them and help to build enduring relationships.
Communicate better with their child
Parents who have the opportunity to glimpse into their children’s world learn to communicate more effectively with their children and are given another setting to offer gentle, nurturing guidance. Less verbal children may be able to express their views, experiences, and even frustrations through play, allowing their parents an opportunity to gain a fuller understanding of their perspective.
