Parents often forget their children’s play impacts them, as well. Your child’s play offers significant insight into your little one’s world. More specifically, her playtimes help you understand:
-What your child is interested in. This is important for bonding.
-Your child’s emotional state. Children express much of what they are feeling through play. For example, if you have recently welcomed a new baby into your family, watch for aggressive play. Your older child might be asking for more attention.
-How you can communicate with your child.
-How your child reacts to challenges and failures
-Your child’s learning style. Play lets you assess whether your child is a visual, auditory, or sensory learner.
