Do you read Clover Lane? Have I posted about her blog before? I love reading her entries.
Here is one of her posts that I've really connected with and have passed on her thoughts to my clients. Part of my job is to get parents to sit on the floor and PLAY with their children... to show them how fun and rewarding it truly can be. Part of the convincing is telling them that it will likely HELP them FEEL better and help their children play more independently. It works!
Matt and I had a conversation about this last weekend. We couldn't wait to spend time with Ethan after our overnight trip to a wedding (Ethan stayed at home with his Nama and Narnold). We were both anxious to reconnect with our boy. After playing with us for a short while Ethan was running off on his own and entertaining himself. Independent play is also important and what a nice way to encourage it!
