I want to be more like Mary Poppins. Instead of screeching at my children to clean up yet another big mess, I want to burst into song and with that “little bit of sugar” watch the work get done. Sometimes, I feel more like the Wicked Witch of the West Still, I want to be ‘Poppinesque’, not just because it would make me feel better about my mothering, but also because I KNOW how important play is. As a pediatric occupational therapist working with children, I use game playing as a major way of helping children be open to their lessons. I know Everything is easier to get down when it’s fun and play is how children learn. So, over the years, I have devised a bunch of games that I use with my own and other children to make the things we have to do be more enjoyable.I don’t use them every time but whenever I do, it turns a potentially bad moment into a fun one. Playing and humor and laughter release a natural high hormone. It’s organic and free and an all-natural joy jumper, but, best of all, it gets the job done.PILE IT UPI came up… Read full this story
