Two Years Old

Play

Play is children’s work while the body develops strong. The developmental priority until the six-year molars are coming through is for the energy to be directed at building the body properly, and building the body strong and healthy.

Play is children’s preparation for their life. It builds children’s concentration, interest and is the foundation of all other learning while building a lifetime love for learning. If we steal children’s energy away from this essential required task of play, such as to engage them in premature emotional or intellectual stimulation, we rob them of their vitality. They will actually pallor in complexion and later they are weak in judgment and common sense.
