Playing cooperatively may actually increase a child’s eagerness to learn.
Every child and parent knows the joy and fun that can come out of play time. Taking a few hours each day to play with toys or build new creations out of building blogs or puzzle toys can help to encourage imagination in children and can help with cognitive development. However, if you have ever had to pull your child away from their favorite toys or play time activities in order to convince them to do their homework, you can now rest easy when it comes to worrying about their education. New research has shown that playing, especially when it includes group or pair playing, can actually increase a child’s eagerness to learn!
