As parents or caregivers we feel it our job to constantly entertain, educate and encourage our children. So while serve and return communication plays an important role in teaching children about the world – it is equally important to allow space for children to lead their own learning through unstructured play.
When we think about our own childhoods, our favourite memories with our parents and caregivers are often cuddles, storytime and silliness – and playing in our own world of imagination.
Offer ideas, but let your children take the lead.
