Children love games. Peek-a-boo, Hide-and-Seek and Ring Around the Rosie are just a few popular games that many toddlers and children enjoy. However, for one little girl playing a game with her father, he takes the game a little too far. When he steals her nose and doesn't give it back, she is beyond upset and she is worried that she may never get it back.
Children have amazing imaginations. Any little problem or any game can be magnified to something impossible — like losing a nose. Encouraging our children to use their imaginations is a large responsibility for a parent. Playtime is a crucial time when children can learn and become more physically active. It provides so much more for them than sitting and staring at a television screen could ever do.
