Here are some important facts you need to know before buying toys this season:

EVERY CHILD IS A UNIVERSE WITH INDIVIDUAL INTERESTS AND SKILLS

You need to get to know your child first, before buying toys that might end up standing on a shelf. 

  1. Listen to your children.
  2. Pay attention to their interests, their skills, their knowledge.
  3. Be aware that PLAY is a fundamental part of every child's good and balanced development.
  4. Be aware of the different types of play and what each type fosters in your child.
  5. Allow your children to be independent and play freely. They need plenty of time for free play.  
  6. look for a balance in the types of play your child is doing but remember to respect their individuality and interests.

This is part a one hour interactive presentation I do to introduce educators and parents to the Visible Thinking Approach from Harvard University.

We have been working implementing Visible Thinking, Making Thinking Visible, and Philosophy for children, conflict resolution and many other tools for thinking at our schools for the past 6 years.

The results are amazing, not only in the way we are seeing our children develop their thinking, but in the way teachers and parents think and create a dynamic Culture of Thinking and Learning
