  • When Play Isn't Fun: Helping Children Resolve Play Conflicts

    Authors: Sandra Heidemann, Deborah Hewitt
    Product Code: 543055
    ISBN: 9781605543055

    Description & More Details

    Published by Redleaf Press free sample When Play Isn't Fun

    Play is essential for children's development and as they learn life skills. But some children face challenges when playing with others, and conflicts can erupt over sharing toys, taking turns, and feeling left out. Despite those moments, children want to play together. With your support and guidance, children can learn how to engage in productive play, resolve struggles, and enjoy group play.

    This workbook outlines strategies to create an engaging play environment, provides information to help you understand skill development, and suggests ways you can encourage children's growth through rich play. It also explains common challenges children might have during group play—like being unengaged in dramatic play, having conflicts with each other, or playing aggressively—and approaches you can use to address them. Use this interactive workbook to thoughtfully respond to play challenges in a way that can open up opportunities for children.

    Age focus: 3-5. Softbound, 88 pgs.
