What should I do when I find play times with my children a bit boring?! Ep 4 Treasure Time Podcast: Growing Up Happy

    • Mental Health

What should I do when I find play times with my children a bit boring?! 
 
What should we do when we find play boring as adults? This simple play principle will help you take the passenger seat while you let the child drive. Parent becomes the student and the child becomes the teacher! In this session we explore the first principle of Treasure Time which is ‘let the child lead’.
