Episode 118: The misconceptions about playtime and child development

In today’s episode I’m talking to Susie Allison, the woman behind Busy Toddler. As a  former teacher and mom of 3 kids, she is an advocate for early childhood education and made it her mission to bring hands-on learning and play back to childhood, support others in their parenting journey, and help everyone make it to nap time. We discussed the following:

  • Why it’s okay not to love playtime
  • Why you don’t need to play with kids all day long
  • Not all kids are great at independent play from the start
  • How to use playtime/awake time to complete chores
