Being playful-essential for adults and kids
As kids we were always playful whenever we had a chance. As adults we can often get busy and let this important part of our lives slip. As busy parents it is easy to see playing with our children as something we just don’t have time to do, even if we want to. Playing with our children is a fundamental part of being a parent and an important way we help them develop healthy relationships with us and others. It doesn’t mean spending long periods of time but taking every opportunity even if it is a few minutes regularly to be playful with them. The wonderful thing is that even for those of us who may find being playful a challenge with practice it has a positive influence on our welleing too.
