Subjects: This week were joined by special guest Susie Robbins who is a play advocate from @resolvetoplay. She talked about why it’s important to play with your kids from a young age. We know that in previous generations men stereotypically were not as involved in the early years experiences including play. However we now know that it enhances a child’s development when they are, and in this session we find out why.
Plus we hear from you (our community) on the subject and learn about some of your favourite games you like to play with your kids too.
As with all our guests Susie was also kind enough to write us a blog piece on the subject. And in her summary highlighted the following 5 reasons as the big advantages of play with your kids.
- Playing gives us a hit of feel-good hormones
- Play can improve your bond with your child
- It empowers your child
- Children learn so much from you when you play together
- You become part of a team
