All parents should encourage their children to use their imagination!! Allowing your child to express themselves, shows them that it is okay to be themselves. Everyone is different and unique!
Let your child play teacher and you be the student.. You will be amazed at what you learn!! (I try to give Lilly a homework assignment at least 2 times a wk.)- This gives her some experience of how real school will work..
Set up a store with your child's toys and books. Put prices on the items and give them so much fake money...
Teach them about spending and saving!
Allow your child to take you order, cook your food, and give you the bill..
Try sending your order back and complaining! This will help teach them how to deal with criticism and complaints, plus it's fun to see their reaction!! LOL
Let your little one play the doctor and you be the patient.. Tell them your symptoms and get their diagnosis..
Just don't let them perform surgery! LOL..
