Playtime and Toys

When choosing Christmas gifts for your child, keep in mind that children learn through play. While playtime may appear all fun and games, essential learning is occurring. Both social and emotional development is occurring. 

Make playtime fun for parent and child, and remember that children model their behaviors; both good and bad, after their parents. Parents should plan playtime each day with their child. It will help strengthen your relationship and as a bonus improve trust, and help foster attachment.
