The worst thing you can do to en­ter­tain chil­dren

Men's Health (Australia) - - Mh Dad -

Avoid “play­ing pre­tend.” Kids are aw­ful at im­pro­vi­sa­tion. They’ll talk more about what they’re go­ing to pre­tend than ac­tu­ally get down to the busi­ness of pre­tend­ing. And they will shoot down every ea­ger ini­ti­a­tion you make. An ex­am­ple . . . You: I’ve fi­nally got you in my clutches, Won­der Girl! Them: No, Daddy! You’re a good guy, not a bad guy. And my name is Su­per Won­der Girl. And you’re my but­ler! And you’re a girl! And so on and so on and so on.
