We often have play dates with locally minded children/children of friends/family, who come to my home. We play inside if the weather is not ideal, or in the garden, park or common. We also visit them if they are close by.
I encourage positive behaviour, which helps build up a child's self worth and self esteem. We are keen on sharing, saying 'please' and 'thank you', taking turns and learn to think about, and care for, our friends.
We learn to keep safe 'stranger danger', and are careful when we cross the road. We always hold hands or hold onto the buggy. We learn how important it is to eat healthily and keep our bodies healthy.
