This podcast is all about play and why it's crucial not just for kids, but for adults as well. Most of the podcast was derived from the book, Play: How it Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates the Soul, by Stuart Brown MD and Christopher Vaughn. Topics include:
Why we play at all. what is the purpose of play.
The cognitive advantages of play.
Why we stop playing as adults.
The 8 different play personalities.
The 3 subtypes of social play: friendship and belonging, rough and tumble play, and celebratory and ritual play.
I do a deep dive into the rough and tumble play and explain why it's important and why parents need to let it happen.
Then we talk about how play is the lubrication that allows societies to function.
And in this week's Call-to-Action we play. That's it. plain and simple. Play for the pure joy of it and have fun because you deserve to.
