Nourishing the New Mother: Ayurvedic Postnatal Care Practices
This blog is different from a typical guide about the process of playing with kids. There's no hard rule to it! Still, there are a few unnoticeable things that can have a significant effect on your child. During or after playtime, their little brains must be filled with thoughts that are hard to know. Their little curious minds should experience playtime as an experience that makes them happy and is cherishable as they remember, for both the parents and children. By taking care of some little things, you can turn that crucial and intrinsic play time into their being more fun and enjoyable.
What You Must Consider?
1. Taking time out constantly:
One of the major drawbacks of our modern living is the shortage of time. We always run less on time and might sometimes feel too tired to play with kids. But, a child communicates and explores the world through their parents. And for this communication, playtime plays an important role. So, try your best to take out some to play regularly. Keeping your efforts constant for babies will help them to relate more and develop healthy bonds from the beginning of their life.
2. Play with them at their level
Getting down at the child's level and letting them decide things is very important for their self-concept. The game rules for an adult shouldn't be a thing when you are playing with a kid or even a toddler! Matching their body language will also make them comfortable. Hence, they will be able to express their creativity freely. So, try to be a kid when playing with a kid.
3. Describing and Praising
Narrating your actions like "now we will put this block here" will give a child insight and help them develop their language skills. Secondly, praising their actions will contribute to their idea of self-growth.
4. Always give closure
Never leave a child in the middle of the game. Always try to complete it, and if it is urgent, try to provide them a closure. No closure might give them anxiety, and this uncertainty might root in their personality. Always provide them with a conclusion! Like, "you have won."
5. A balance of control
The right amount of participation is significant for their growth and development. Not telling a child what to do and telling too much about it is never a good option. When a child is left free, they feel negligent, and extra control lowers their self-esteem.
