PLAY TIME SACRED MOMENTS IN A CHILD’S LIFE.

In the midst of our busy schedules, all of us try to find time to be by ourselves, where we try to make sense of the happenings of the day and work out the puzzle of life itself. We all have seen how important this time is as it helps us to relax and at the same time it gives us renewed energy to continue into the next task or day. Some of us just can’t live without that quality time as it helps us to grow in strength and find meaning in what we do.
Did you know that children too need that special sacred time to make sense of their world and to be able to unwind themselves from expectations and rules. Adults choose a serene place or even put some music and relax. But with children the best tool for such quality time is their play time. Have you noticed your child so engrossed sometimes in their play that they just forget where they are. That is their sacred solemn moment. Leave them be. It is very important for children to have this space for free play, mind you not guided or instructed, but something that they choose to do on their own. The sad part is most of our children are so bogged down with things to do even at this young age( soccer class, lawn tennis, music class, chess class, homework and so much more) that they just don’t have time to play and when I mean play , it is just play.
We as parents, teachers, and care takers have an obligation to our children to make space for SACRED PLAY TIME as we plan our children’s lives . Don’t be afraid of them wasting their time as they play. Let me tell you the impact of play on your child. Playtime has always enhanced learning.
During play, children learn how they influence the world and their surroundings Play is an important part of keeping a child healthy; both physically and emotionally Play encourages children to use their imagination and enhance their problem-solving skills. Children learn about different people through play. They learn that not everyone is the same and that all need to be respected.
Through play children can also begin to recognize their own special abilities. Children will learn what they are good at and discover what they like to do.
Stuart Brown, a psychiatrist at the Baylor College of Medicine at Houston, has interviewed some 6,000 people about their childhood, and his data suggest that a lack of opportunities for unstructured, imaginative play can keep children from growing into happy, well-adjusted adults. “Free play,” as scientists call it, is critical for becoming socially adept, coping with stress and building cognitive skills such as problem solving. Kids and animals that do not play when they are young may grow into anxious, socially maladjusted adults.
How can you be a perfect play partner? ( Here is something that I found eye catching) Although it is important to let children play alone. There are many things that adults can do that will help our children build confidence, self esteem, focus their attention and improve their language and motor skills by interactively playing with them. These skills do not always come naturally and parents need to be taught how to be a good play partner.
WATCH AND LEARN: The first step to becoming a good play partner is to observe our child's play patterns while concentrating on what they like to do in specific ways. For example, what types of toy does your child choose to play with the most? Does your child like to figure out how it works or use the object to build something else? Often parents get in a hurry and don't take the time to sit back to watch and learn.
FOCUS ON THEIR IDEAS:After observing, it is time for parents to start playing with their child. One of the biggest mistakes parents make when playing with their child is to dominate their play. When we take over a child's play we can send a negative message to the child that their way was the wrong way and their efforts were not good enough. To be a good play partner you have to focus on THEIR ideas, not your own! When joining our kids playtime ask questions like "What would you like me to do?" and follow their lead.
USE "INFORMATION TALK" :When parents and care givers describe playtime using information talk it helps kids notice their surroundings. It can also help provide them with information they can process and help them understand and use language skills as they listen to your speech patterns and sentence structure. While describing make sure you don't overload your child with information. Keep it on their level. Most importantly spend time with your child, down on the floor sitting at their level and help them feel loved and important part of your life.
We just need to go down memory lane to those moments when mum and dad repeatedly called us saying, “Play play is that all you like to do. Go and do something constructive” Let us be different and say, “ Have you had your play time. I think it is time you begin”
