Why parents love playing with children

Spending time with children

Good news! A recent survey from Kinder and the Woodland Trust reveals that as parents we’re spending longer than ever before with their children: 26% longer than we were at the beginning of the decade to the present day.

Apparently, it’s all about your circle time activities and playing with children in an environment that’s conducive to the atmosphere.

Out of all the parents asked, almost all 96% said they wished they could spend more of this time outdoors.

In this video below child psychologist Dr. Elizabeth Kilbey and Shaun Nixon from the Woodland Trust explain why that’s such a good idea and suggest some ways that parents can achieve their circle time activities.
