Role playing is a great way to work out situations with children. As mentioned on MyKingstonKids Radio with our guest host, Corin and Judson from Wayfinder imagination is a critical component to child development and effective social skill building.
It’s one thing for kids to hear parents give them instructions on how to do things differently, but to be most effective, they need an opportunity to practice. Role playing provides them with an opportunity to practice new behaviour in a safe environment. You can offer feedback and coaching by creating role playing opportunities.
