The relationship between roleplay and empathy

How good is it to be a kid? They have the power to make any situation a time for play (and of course, fun!) From the everyday moments like doing the grocery shopping or riding in the car to sitting around the dinner table, they can roleplay what it’s like to be a farmer who cares for animals around the farm. Life with little ones is never dull that’s for sure! Genevieve Muir from Connected...

Understanding the power of imaginative play

When our children play and create it’s almost like we can see the little cogs in their minds turning with new ideas.

But it turns out that’s actually not doing them any favours in the long run. Because losing (or losing gracefully) takes practice and children need a safe environment in which to learn. Giving them opportunities to win and lose in a play environment, will help your child build confidence and...

The building bricks of life…

As our children grow and begin to find their place in the world, they will need to have the emotional skills to build healthy relationships and friendships.  We often want our children to win, but by providing them with a supportive environment where they can experience small failures and losses, we are helping them develop their emotional regulation skills.

Questions to ask your child during play

Play is such an incredibly important part of our little ones’ development – but it can often feel like another chore on our endless to-do lists as busy parents. But when you do stop and take those few moments to just be present with your child – you’ll see their little face light up and their whole demeanour shift.

Little minds, BIG ideas…

As parents, it is our role to raise the next generation of critical thinkers and doers. Whilst their brain might not be able to fully process the information we share with them, they are constantly making connections and forming ideas about the world around them.  We know the best way to raise kids to take on the values that are important to us is through what we model. However, we also know that kids ‘bed...
