Playing and Emotional Development

emotionalhealth.jpgResearch has shown that playing, whether in a park or your backyard, is essential for a child’s emotional development. Successful adults have all had a background of playing throughout their lives. Playing helps children to be spontaneous, to be humorous, and to develop positive feelings. Playing builds self-esteem and helps children create a sense of well being. Children playing have a better sense of happiness and increased sensitivity to others. These are all things necessary in overcoming obstacles in life.
