Stop Entertaining Your Toddler (In 3 Steps)

Stop Entertaining Your Toddler (In 3 Steps) | Family Friendly Learning | Scoop.it

“The more time children spend in passive-receptive mode, the less adept and comfortable they will be playing independently. So…

---- Avoid screen use or keep it to a bare minimum

---- Offer simple toys and objects that make for more active, creative play

---- Instead of offering specific play activities, wait for children to invent their own

---- Have no fear of boredom

---- Let whatever children choose to do (or not do) be “enough”

 Remember these golden rules of parenting:

The more we do (or toys do)…
---- the less our child does

---- the more our child thinks she needs us (or toys) to do for him

---- the less confident, capable, creative and fulfilled she feels..."

Deborah McNelis's curator insight, April 2, 2013 2:26 PM

Children need the opportuntiy for imaginative play to develop the highest thinking areas of the brain responsible for self regulation and executive function.

Tess Sorensen's comment, April 6, 2013 3:34 PM
"Play is created by children, not adults." Adults, learn to step back and let the children lead. Do not ever think that you are only a teacher, you must remember to be a learner also.

My boys love to play with their iPad. My oldest who is 4 ½ spends an average of about 45 minutes each day playing a variety of games. Some like Endless Alphabet are educational while others like Fruit Ninja, are not so much.

I suppose the answer is a fairly simple one. Like everything in life, access to technology is best done with a healthy serving of moderation.

One constant that we can always count on, regardless of cultural or social situations, is that young children will play. If you ask a young child why he plays, he'll probably say "Because it's fun!" Of course, being adults, we have to define play in terms we are comfortable with. Below is an overview of play theory and theorists from the past 100 years.
