A recent study titled, “Parental playfulness as a mediator of the association between parents’ emotional difficulties and children’s psychosocial adjustment” was published in August 2023 in the journal of Early Child Development and Care.
👉It found that playful parenting is directly correlated with many benefits in children including:
✨fewer negative behaviors,
✨a decrease in anxiety and depression,
✨and more kind behaviors.
The researchers found the connection between parental playfulness and children’s emotional development to be critically important.
We can’t be more excited about more and more research coming out emphasizing a fact that our entire business is based upon: Play is SO powerful! 💗💪🧠
