How to understand our kids better: the healing power of play

Our little guys don’t have the developmental ability to comprehend their feelings and behaviors that we do when decision making. That’s why when you ask a rowdy 6 year old why he threw his truck against the wall, his “I don’t know” might actually be accurate.
Our kids can’t always articulate themselves in a way that we expect of them. We have to adapt alternative ways of perceiving their thoughts/behaviors to help them handle it in an age appropriate and developmental way.
