Play – a natural means of children’s expression. The parent leaves the child a free choice of games and does not perform any activities for him, thanks to which the child has the opportunity to reveal and express his feelings. By observing your child while they are playing, you can become aware of their needs, interests, sources of anxiety and frustration, and how the child copes in a given situation. Play mobilizes the child to make decisions, choices, overcome the difficulties encountered, thus enabling his harmonious development.
