Keeping your kids entertained and active can be a challenge for any parent, especially when it comes to finding safe places with games for both girls and boys. As a parent it is important to stimulate your child’s development in a healthy way while encouraging them to play and socialize with other kids. What seems like simple games, may in fact be the foundation for healthy cognitive development and emotional intelligence.
According to Psychology Today, pretend play is an essential part of a child’s cognitive development, especially between the ages of two and seven. Studies have shown demonstrable cognitive benefits such as increase in language usage, “theory of mind”, and the ability to integrate emotion with cognition.
