Children are learning to grow and playgrounds are their experimental laboratories. They play, they fight, they share things, they lose, they win but most of all they enjoy themselves without the supervision of adults who are always asking children to behave themselves or not to forget their manners. There are some very important life lessons that children learn from these children’s outdoor playsets which stays with them forever:
- Everyone has a potential of being good friends
When you take your kids to a park and they play on wooden outdoor playsets amongst other kids coming from all sorts of caste and backgrounds, they learn to share and play by adapting their different habits and learning about their culture and they grow up in diversity.
- There’s always something else to play with
Parks are mostly clamoured with kids and it often happens that a swing is fully occupied and there’s hardly any chance of your child getting a chance to play on them. In such situations it is your responsibility to teach them that there are different options available and when something doesn’t work out, they have to come up with another plan and keep yourself occupied with different things.
- Everyone gets a turn
Instead of fighting with each other whose turn it is to play on the swings, children learn to give everyone a chance, enjoy their time and build patience because it is one of the most important attribute that individuals must possess. They learn to follow the rules and respect everyone’s turn.
- Face obstacles
When you leave children on their own in a place where other children are playing, they learn to be their own guardian. Sometimes other kids won’t share their toys with them or they will off from a slide but they aren’t with their parents who will console them and thus they learn to manage its own self and face situations bravely. After all it is true that you can’t be with your kids in every step of the way and they will eventually have to learn to survive on their own and the sooner they learn this the better they will be able to perform in their life. This is also a great technique to teach them to be independent and not always wanting to rely on others for something that they want.
