CALM AND CONNECTED - EPISODE 12

How Play and Coping Skills are Connected

As you may know, I run two websites - Encourage Play and Coping Skills for Kids. Although at first glance it doesn’t seem like these two are connected, they are - by PLAY!

Some of the things I talk about during this podcast:

  • Play is an integral part of childhood, and of being human. All of us need to play!

  • Play (doing something for pure enjoyment) is also a natural way for children and adults to relieve stress. 

  • Two ideas for how parents can encourage play at home - careful scheduling and providing open ended toys like:

    • K’NEX ®

    • Blocks

    • LEGO ® blocks

    • Marble Runs
