Puzzled and confused she asked , one fine day
Why send my child to play?
I looked at her and smiled,
Coz that is what makes them fine.
With a pause, I spoke again
Not only does it let their energy gain
Also, helps them learn to wait
with their own age-mates.
Or else they will always want to be the ‘first’
Impulse control is a must!
Besides, it helps them to learn,
on how to take turns!
A bit settled in her thoughts, she glares
waiting patiently and wanting me to continue with my flair!
I proceeded and said,
Let them do their jobs well.
Play helps them to know how to talk
instead of being mocked.
Perspectives are learnt
and not only taught!
I concluded to say,
The child should play,
for at least some time of the day!
She smiled back and said,
Now I know
Why is it important to play!
