Often we inhibit it by doing the exact things we are recommended to do to encourage independent play. In this video you’ll learn how to encourage independent play and how to encourage your child to play independently. Children need independent play. In order to support independent play consider how much passive entertainment is in the home. Independent play for toddlers and independent play for babies is going to look a bit different. It’s best to have things set up separately for them in order to encourage independent play for each child. Setting up an invitation to play is another way to teach a child to play independently. When encouraging independent play you should not choose the play, all play should be child led play. In this video you will learn how to encourage your child to play independently. As you follow child-led play instead of adult led your children will play more independently. By the end of this video you’ll know how to encourage your toddler to play alone.
