Our children are being raised in a vastly different
world than the one we grew up in. Today's digital world is filled with constant distraction, forever demanding our attention, and suggesting our next actions.
Is this what we want for our kids? More importantly, is this what's best for them?
As parents, we want our children to have every possible opportunity, and this starts by teaching them to follow their curiosity
. Because when they do, they soon develop a love for lifelong learning
, and begin to see
every opportunity as a possibility.
This is where potential is realised
Now this all sounds great, but the question remains, how?
This playstyle prioritises fun
by creating a scenario where rules are loose and only imagination
sets the boundaries. Never before has there been such an important time for our children to engage in open-ended play
. When they do this, they are given their first chances at developing fundamental skills, including:
- Problem Solving
- Working Memory
- Cognitive Flexibility
- and Self-Regulation
Think about it, open-ended play is likely one of the only
times that your child is in total control
of their experience.
In a world that is rapidly becoming highly automated, skills such as self-motivation and initiative grow scarce.
There is a need for safe, quality resources that promote such open-ended play and cultivate these skills. Resources that can't be captured by any amount of pixels on a screen. Resources that your child can hold, explore, imagine, and re-imagine to exercise their endless capacity for creativity.
Connecting families with these possibilities is why Baby Bundles was created.
