“A major function of play may well be to provide practice for real life.”
– Sandra Aamodt, PH.D., and Sam Wang, PH. D.
In their book Welcome to Your Child’s Brain, Aamodt and Wang describe child’s play as a way for them to learn life skills and what they like.
When one thinks about their preschooler having a play date with a few classmates outside of school, they might cringe at the idea of teaching their child to share. Most parents would agree that sharing is an essential life skill – and will ultimately create caring citizens for our society.
Sharing doesn’t have to be a difficult life skill to learn. Start small – not with the child’s own toys, but maybe by sharing turns on the same swing at the park or sharing turns building towers at the museum.
