Play is critical to children’s health, development and wellbeing. As adults, we are often inclined to instruct and interfere in play, but children get more out of play when it is led by them.
From taking a step back to supporting your child to enjoy physical challenges in their day-to-day lives, these wonderful tips from Play Wales will help you parent playfully!
Play Wales works to raise awareness of children and young people’s need and right to play and to promote good practice at every level of decision making and in every place where children might play. They provide advice and guidance to support all those who have an interest in, or responsibility for providing for children’s play so that one day Wales will be a place where every child’s play needs are recognised and provided for.
