3 Reasons to Play with Your Kids


  1. You’ll have fewer attention-seeking behaviors– When parents play with their children, they proactively fill the child’s need for attention and decrease behaviors that children might otherwise exhibit in order to receive that attention.
  2. It’s a chance to create an emotional connection– Many of the daily interactions between parents and kids consists of giving directions and corrections. However, when parents play on the floor and have fun with their kids, emotional connections are strengthened and lasting memories are created.
  3. You’ll have more cooperative children– When the child’s need for emotional connection and attention are met, they don’t feel the need to “fight us” to get negative attention and are more cooperative when asked to do things throughout the day.
