Watching children having fun with their toys can be an interesting affair.
Even as they are playing, it is a good practice to strike some conversation with them, as it can be an opportunity to educate them about the items that they are playing and guide them on how things should be done. As to the subject of conversation, it’s entirely up to you.
This might not be walk in the park for some, as to be patient and gentle at the same time is not as easy as it seems.
Some children love the attention given. When trust is established, they will even confide to you many things about their daily lives. It is enjoyable to lend our ears and have fun with them in such manner.
These wholesome interactions help bond the relationship – giving them a sense of assurance & encouragement to speak, allowing us to know and understand the child, while improving in the communication skills of a child and teaching them things around them. Repetition is the best teacher.
Below is a video of a mommy having fun with her son.
On a separate note, do you think is unusual to see a boy playing with kitchen themed toys?
In reality, we see more men than women in the scene of the culinary profession. So is it wrong for parents to train their son via role-playing on how to handle a kitchen? Do you think this is a way to instil the love for cooking in a young child?
I have seen little girls playing with toy cars while toddler boys playing with baby/Barbie dolls. To some parents, a toy can be just inherited from the child’s other sibling who is of the opposite gender while some parents getting them for the sake of giving their child a variety of exposure.
Is it such a big deal after all? Perhaps it is just a stereotype perception?
