Tis the season.
Imagination in children gives them a chance to control their own world. During the holidays we encourage young ones to stretch those imaginings. During Easter, and when they lose a tooth, we laugh at their conversation and excitement. When we encourage young children to imagine being any number of characters like a bus driver, a fireman or a circus performer, we encourage them to develop their imaginations (as long as it is grounded in safe actions)
We read fiction to ourselves and to children; we watch movies and TV programs That push us to suspend disbelief and accept talking animals and other worlds. It promotes creative thinking, an important, life-long part of thinking and reasoning.
Keep imagining alive for children and for ourselves.
