Setting Up Playdates For Your Kids

Playdates For Your Kids

Educational Consultant Lisa Hirsh-Wax gives parents some tips for playdates with your children.  Ask you child what they have planned for their play date and set boundaries before their friend comes over.  What is a good balance between hovering and making sure they play well and safely.  Suggest they spend some times outdoors, pop in periodically to see if they would like snacks and make sure they are getting along.  If they are not it’s okay for parents to intervene at every age and stage.
