All children discover the pleasure of play in early childhood. With both our grandchildren, Anna and I observed that, that they look forward to being read to or playing with toys or being outdoor watching sights and scenes and listening!
One aspect that adults and parents can help immensely, is to create a child friendly library of toys and books at home corresponding to their age! Children would explore themselves on their own and adults can enlarge their horizon of thinking and experience by engaging with them.
I wish at least half the time that children spend watching TV or playing games in the computer can be replaced by interactive times!
The loneliness of childhood gets intensified when we offer everything else to them except ourselves!
