Play offers children an opportunity to explore ideas, solve problems, discover wonders, use their imagination, be creative, and work through their feelings. Today, we live in a fast-paced world where parents are busy, and kids are always at school or playdates. As parents, it is becoming increasingly important to help our little ones prioritize solitary play and allow their kids to play in peace, be quiet, and take charge.
Child development includes a growing awareness of the world as children interact within it. Solitary play is the beginning of your child’s independence and a step towards social interactions. As they learn to enjoy their own company, kids learn creativity, problem-solving, and that being alone is ok.
