Make-believe is fun. Join in the adventure!

Embrace your child’s make-believe friends. After all, you also had your make-believe friends when you were his or her age. Join in the adventures your child creates. It is okay to be a kid and “play along” with their world. Don’t just tell them to go play—engage in the game with them. Join them in making up new adventures and situations. Enjoy a tea party or a battle with robots. A few minutes living where your child lives will do you both a lot of good. This builds their confidence and creative thinking skills and gives you a wonderful break from the realities of life you are facing.
