Why Play Matters - An Infographic

The instinct to play is hard wired into the human DNA. When children play, they develop connections between the motor, perceptual, cognitive, social, and emotional areas of the brain. Critical thinking, communication, language, and emotional expression are also developed in play through trial and error. Impairments to cognitive, language, emotional, and physical development have all been linked t a deficit in play.

Our Mama Village

A few perspectives to keep in mind over the busy holiday season:

Kids who are melting down over the holidays don’t mean:

“I’m trying to ruin your fun”
“I’m trying to embarrass you”
“You are a bad parent”
“I am a bad child”
“I need you to meet my demands”
“I need to learn a lesson”
“I’m defiant and refuse to listen”
“I hate you”

Kids who are melting down over the holidays may mean:

“I’m really overstimulated and need a break”
“There’s a lot of new people and I’m feeling overwhelmed”
“I need your attention”
“My Brain is feeling flooded right now with emotion, I cant think logically”
“I need you to take me to a safe space to let these feelings out”
“Please help me find a peaceful spot to hang out”
“I feel safe to have these feelings with you.”
“This has been a big day for me”
“I’m hungry, tired, or bored”
“I need you to be my calm right now”
“This is all new for me”
“I love you and feel safe with you” —
