Your Child is Ready to Learn Bonding Through Play

Team AckoFeb 8, 2024

With your child's rapid growth at this stage, play is essential to the social, emotional, cognitive, and physical well being of his. It is a natural tool for children to develop resilience as they learn to cooperate, overcome challenges, and negotiate with others.

What you need to know 
Play also allows children to be creative. It provides time for parents to be fully engaged with their children, to bond with their children, and to see the world from the perspective of their child. For children who are under resourced to reach their highest potential, it is essential that you recognize the importance of lifelong benefits that children gain from play.

It could be argued that active play is so central to child development that it should be included in the very definition of childhood. Play offers more than cherished memories of growing up; it allows children to develop creativity and imagination while developing physical, cognitive, and emotional strengths. Play enhances physical health by building active, healthy bodies. Physical activity beginning in early childhood prevents obesity. In fact, play may be an exceptional way to increase physical activity levels in children and, therefore, may be included as an important strategy in addressing the obesity epidemic.
