Child's Play
Play • 1 hr 6 min

When was the last time you really just played? For kids, play is happening all day every day, but as adults who have all too often lost sight of our inner child play is then pigeonholed into one definition and therefore no longer appeals to us. We tend to think that play is really just the work of children while us big, "important" adults have better, more productive things to do. But the reality is that rediscovering your love of play as well as learning about the many complex layers of play will help you to better understand how and why your child loves to play and why it matters so much to both children and adults.

This week Kaila peels back the curtain behind everything play related and how to encourage your child and your often stubborn self to love play with Sivanne, a parent coach, progressive educator, mama and early childhood specialist. Sivanne is a play enabler; following nearly two decades in the classroom she now supports children through her work as The Joyous Parent, Sivanne guides parents to be confident they are raising creative, resilient LIFE ready kids...through the art of play! Check out her work at and join the joyous journey on @thejoyousparent on FB and Instagram.
