Play is self-chosen, self-directed, and imaginative. But what if children choose to play in ways we are uncomfortable with? It is very common for preschool children to engage in gun play or war play. Children who have a hard time joining social play often find success in this type of play. Unfortunately, teachers often ignore this type of play or ban it completely, but neither approach meets the needs of children. This type of play offers children a explore and experience power and consent.
In this webinar, early childhood expert and author Mike Huber will help us step back and look at war play to appreciate how it can be an important mode of self-expression for some children.
Join Mike to:
- Foster a community of consent in all types of pretend play
- Understand how our personal viewpoint can affect our attitude toward some types of play
- Appreciate the creativity and child-created structure of violent-themed play
- Implement strategies to meet competing needs of children in a classroom
All sessions are 1.5 hours long and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
2:oo PM – 3:30 PM Eastern Time.
