LET THEM PLAY


Imagine you’re in the middle of an important work task, you’re in the zone and you feel like you’re really getting somewhere… and someone comes along and starts talking to you about your shoes.



Your concentration is broken and you may feel a little miffed that you’re out of your flow and it will take a while to get back into it.



That’s what it’s like for babies and toddlers when they’re in the middle of playing. It might seem like they’re just turning a teether round in their hand, or they’re bumbling around muttering or singing to themselves.



They’re actually in ‘deep work’ mode, at the peak of their concentration. They’re really focussing on what to them is a difficult task or a complex, new concept.


Try not to take responsibility for your kids' actions if something goes wrong &

Let them fail - its ok if they fail at something, it can help them to learn from their own experiences


Focus on equipping your kids with the skills they need

Don't do for your kids what they can do for themselves, think everyone been guilty of doing jobs to hurry things along though 🤣


Learning through play is a fantastic way to bring on your childs development. If they build a tower, its falls, they have a meltdown (grit your teeth or step away) they will pick themselves back up & continue - you will instinctively know when they need a hug/hi five/cheer squad


So let them play and support their learning by doing NOTHING 🤩
