The Critical Role of Imagination in Childhood Development by Dr. Caron Goode

Imagination is a potent ingredient that we as busy parents often dismiss and brush aside as mere childhood play. But imagination is a critical component to learning—one that serves as the foundation for a host of necessary life skills. Self-dialog is a component of imaginative play that helps children learn to overcome obstacles and master the art of self-regulation. Unstructured imaginative play also serves to round out a child’s whole-person development.
