    It has actually been shown that play is absolutely necessary to a childs development. Without it, children fail to release held in energy, and later in life end up using it on less than acceptable behaviors.

    I totally support child play.

    Yes. the whole nature vs. nurture ordeal from psychology kind of explains it but i definitely think kids playing with other kids is very important!

    Yes, that is the main way children learn. As soon as a baby is old enough to hold an item in there hand and put it in there mouth, they are learning.

    definite that's an important portion of getting to grasp and progression. babies play by way of emulating what they see of their atmosphere. i.e. little females play homestead. little boys could play pretend to repair an motor vehicle. They learn by way of function enjoying. One psychologist positioned it as a toddler's "activity" to play.
