Ep 07 Why is Play Important for My Child? Let’s Talk about What Play is and What it is Not

Play is POWERFUL.  I’m going to show you why in this episode, by telling you ten things play is and is not.  My goal is, by the end of this, you are encouraged to keep playing with your child.  That you’ll see that your child learns valuable skills for life when he or she is stacking blocks, feeding a teddy bear, or pretending to stir cake batter.
