|Play is common throughout the animal kingdom - whether it's a puppy chasing its tail Kelly Oubre Jr. Jersey , or kittens chasing a ball of wool, the importance of play to youngsters must not be underestimated. Play is an essential part of growing up and researchers believe it's critical to ensure children achieve their full potential in life. Research in animals show brain connections forming during periods of play, and there's no reason to suppose the same is not true of young humans. Parents don't always understand the importance of play though, and in today's competitive world, the temptation is to stop your children "wasting time" and to put the time to what they believe is more constructive use.
For a child, though,however Juwan Howard Jersey , there is no more constructive activity than play. When considering the importance of play you should take into account the following points:
Play allows a young child to be "in charge." Consider this - in their everyday lives, they're small and powerless, always being given instructions. Without an adult around, they're running the show!
Play helps children learn about the world in which they live. They can experiment and discover, test their theories, spatial relationships, explore cause and effect John Wall Jersey , societal roles and family values. Such is the importance of play, that there's almost no part of life about which it can't teach a child something.
Play develops self-esteem. Children will often play at something they know they can do well, at which they can be successful.
Play develops social skills. Children will start off playing with inanimate and non-threatening objects, like cuddly toys, bricks etc, so learning their interactive skills. Later, playing with other youngsters will build on this foundation as they learn to share Jodie Meeks Jersey , take turns, assert themselves and begin to empathise with others.
The importance of play with parents shouldn't be underestimated either, as research shows that children whose parents play with them will eventually develop enhanced social skills.
Play also gives an opportunity for children to work out their feelings. The importance of play in dealing with difficult or unpleasant emotions is immense. A child who's worried about going to the dentist, for example, may deal with the anxiety by setting up a clinic for dolls with toothache.
Play aids language development. Think of the large number of words a toddler employs during play, many of them repeatedly, reinforcing their language skills.
Play permits children to be little grown-ups. They can pretend to be all sorts of things in play - a doctor Jason Smith Jersey , a surgeon, a civil engineer even !!(think of those bricks)
Finally, remember to consider the importance of play in stimulating your child's creativity and imagination - making a castle in the sand, or a car garage out of a shoe box, taking an order in their own (imaginary) restaurant or dressing up as a king or queen - these all allow children to stretch the limits of their world and experience the fun in make-believe.
