The weather has been getting warmer which means children are wanting to explore and play outside. With my eldest who is 2, she loves being outside with all the sand, mud, water, just playing about to her little heart’s content. This is also when minor accidents and scrapes happen and as a parent, it is our jobs to comfort and care for them to soothe away their tears.
So how do we turn the tears into smiles?
I think children playing outdoors is very important because they are able to challenge themselves with learning, exploring, being active, and also risk-taking. Yes, there are accidents that can happen and will happen, but as long as you have accessed the area for any major safety issues, then let children just be children.
