I think we can all agree the idea of independent playtime is an awesome one. It is a time set aside to let your child play on their own. What are the benefits? Your child gets a chance to learn problem solving skills on their own. They can explore their imagination while they learn to entertain themselves. They get some needed quiet time in their day. And as a parent, you have a chance to get a break from all things kid. Basically it is a win-win situation. Figuring out how to implement it successfully can have some challenges. When do you put in the day? Is there enough time? How do I get my child to agree to this activity?
