“Do you want to play with me?’ I hear this oftentimes from my preschooler. We do ‘play’ a lot, but playing with his contemporaries
is different altogether. It is essential for his development. .
What happens during playdates can really support several aspects of development. Interaction with other children is a very healthy way to develop social, emotional, cognitive, language and physical domains. .
In today’s world of over-scheduled kids and families, unstructured playtime with a friend can be a nice break. .
Allowing children time for periods of uninterrupted peer play is significant in child development. .
Go and schedule a playdate now. You will be so happy you did a big thing for your child. This post serves as an invitation to a play date. 😊 .
