I pity kids these days. Their lives are packed with schedules. Sometimes, seeing the trend and the education system, I feel that the children were not given a chance to enjoy their childhood. They’re not only made to do homeworks at the tender age of 3 during their pre-school years, but they also spend more time in front of the idiot box than playing too.
Playing is the most natural thing to do for any individual, but what you may not know is that there’s so much more to it than just having fun.
But in recent years, the amount of parents who have started to use technology as a substitute to spending actual quality time with their children is increasing at an alarming rate. Many disregard the importance of interaction or play with their children.
Playing is the best means in helping children with brain development and learning. When children can actively manipulate and explore toys in their environment, they learn best. Adults playing together with children will enhance the relationship between the parent/adult and child which is pivotal in a childâ€™s development.
Fisher-Price, a firm believer in the development of children through play and bonding notices this trend.Through The Power of â€œInteractiveâ€ Play Workshop, Fisher-Price will be sharing the benefits of play through the five development stages (Sensory Stimulation, Sitting & Reaching, Speech Development, On the Go and Walker & Rider) and to further encourage adults to spend more time with children.
The Power of â€œInteractiveâ€ Play Parenting Workshop will exhibit the different kinds of activities and exercises that adults can have with children. It will further elaborate on the different tools that can be used to further assist with the different development stages of children.
