Is there a link between how children play and how they learn? Decades of research show that play is important for helping children develop physically, socially and emotionally. Encouraging children to play often and in a variety of settings can help them learn to interact and cooperate with others, develop stronger peer relationships and find ways to manage stress. When children play, they learn. So play often and have fun with your child. It makes your parenting count.
