  • PlayTime with one-on-one

    On page 160, Larry writes about one-on-one time. How much one-on-one time do you dedicate a day to each child?

    "The basic format of PlayTime is quite simple. The parent or some other adult sets aside regular one-on-one time with a child. The adult offers the child undivided attention with no interruptions and with a clear focus on connection, engagement, and interaction. In a sense, PlayTime is just Playful Parenting Plus, where the "plus" means more enthusiasm, more joining, more committment to closeness and confidence, more fun a more welcoming attitude toward their feelings, more willingness to put one's own feelings aside, more active and boisterous play. In addition, you don't answer the phone or cook dinner or take a nap during Playtime."
