Playing with your preschooler
Parenting Expert, Dr. Laura Marham says playing physical games with our children makes them more cooperative and parents more energized. No, really. Children need to play and physical play reduces stress hormones and increases bonding hormones for both of us. After a long day at school and work, two to ten minutes of active play should be plenty to make both parent and child feel better. Then we can settle down for a relaxing, cooperative evening. It’s worth a try.
