We’ve all heard the term “independent play” but what is it? I think it is a vague term but to me it refers to self directed play. You might laugh and say, well you replaced one vague term with another, but stick with me!
When I decided to be a stay at home mom, I had a vision of playing together and making irreplaceable memories. However, it wasn’t soon after that I realized that the memories I was giving her were far from ideal. I was too tired and preoccupied to enjoy our time together. It felt like a lose-lose situation for both us. Something had to change.
