Hi, I’m Dr. David Hill, with today’s tip for kids from the American Academy of Pediatrics. Children love to play. But did you know play is important for healthy brain development? Play helps children learn language, math, and social skills, and lowers stress. This is good for kids – and their parents. The next time your child wants to play with you, say yes! It’s one of the best parts of being a parent. For more information on child development, visit healthyChildren.org, or talk with your pediatrician.
