This speaker event is meant to stir in each participant the ‘wonder’ of seeing the world Through the Child’s Eyes. Dr. Lapointe firmly believes that if each of us (big people) can find ourselves looking out at the world, experiencing and knowing the world, and feeling and responding to the world the way a child does, we are infinitely more capable of responding to children in ways that resonate with the science of development. That is, to do right by our children we need to see the world through their eyes.
Through the Child’s Eyes: Playing & Growing—Jean Piaget, renowned expert and theorist regarding child development is often famously quoted as having decreed that “play is the child’s work.” Playing and Growing is a speaker event that debunks some of the myths about play for our children and refocuses our attention on the true play that our growing children need room for in their lives. Included will be a discussion about how to differentiate play born of rest from performance driven play, and how to facilitate conditions in your child’s world so this kind of restful play has room to grow and blossom.
