Self-expression is a great way for your little one to communicate how they feel, what they need, and what they like—or don’t like! Encouraging your child to express themselves is a great way to enhance their communication skills.
Kids have big emotions and don’t always know how to navigate them. One of the easiest ways to get your little ones to express themselves is through play! They may act out how they’re feeling and use play to process emotions and events that they’re dealing with.
Play gives children the freedom and safety to be their true, authentic selves. It’s also a great way to find friends with common interests and connect with others on a deeper level. By encouraging your child to express themselves freely, they’ll gain confidence and a true sense of identity that will carry with them throughout their lives.
