This week on Present Moment Parenting we are joined by Educational Psychologist, Samantha Leader to discover the importance of play.

Find out why play is the most important aspect of your child’s learning, how it enhances every area of both their cognitive and emotional development, and why it is so important to have playtime with your children.

We look at why parents have forgotten how to play, how a lack of playtime due to formal schooling and over-scheduling children’s afternoons negatively influences children’s development, and the role of media in play and learning.

It’s never too late to learn how to play and to connect with your kids, and Samantha is the perfect person to teach you the how and why!
