Upcoming summer days should offer prime time for parent-child play. More relaxed (hopefully) weekend schedules and vacation days (hopefully) will contribute to many fun, bonding experiences.
But is that merely hopeful thinking? The Ribena Plus Play Report (more than 2,000 parents in the UK) revealed some stats of concern:
92% of parents believe imaginary play is important, but 16% don’t know how to create it with their child
One in seven parents say “I don’t know what I’m doing when I’m playing with my kids.”
Almost one-third of parents feel guilty for playing with their children instead of doing housework.
Perhaps prioritizing play now will help you have fun with your kids even before summer!
