Do not believe the hype. Many educational toys tout benefits you might never see. Before you spend a lot of money on educational toys or electronics, ask your child's teacher or principal for recommendations. While that electronic globe looks great and has a lot of features, puzzles or a craft kit might better serve your child's needs. Involve your child in the discussion and purchase of toys. You want to make sure you choose toys with which they will actually play. Run around. Regard- less of whether or not your child plays organized sports, make time several days a week for them to run around and exercise. From swinging a bat to swinging on a swing set, physical activity helps kids grow strong and re- lease some energy. Play games. When chil- dren play games, they learn important social les- sons. Team games help teach skills such as how to work together, how to handle conflict and how to strategize. Board games teach skills such as shar- ing, taking turns and the art of compromise. Playing games also teaches children how to be graceful winners and good losers. While par- ents and caregivers can be game "partners," it is more important to have children interact with siblings or peers. Expect play. After- school and summer child- care programs can be won- derful opportunities for children to play--or they can be play busters. When looking at these programs, ask how much time your child will have to play and how much time is spent watching TV and playing computer or video games. Choose a program you feel allows your child enough time to play and use his or her imagination. The most important thing is to allow your children to be chil- dren and learn through play. . -
