Your Child at Play

Five to Eight Years: Building Friendships, Expanding Interests, and Resolving Conflicts
  • By Marilyn Segal
  • By Betty S. Bardige

Packed with learning activities, games, poems, and recipes, as well as anecdotes and advice, the eight sections focus on:

  • Individual Differences and Common Threads (distinguishing between real and pretend; concern with fairness; self-awareness)
  • The Questions Children Ask (the physical world; the natural world; the social world)
  • Friends (best friends; controversies and conflicts; sibling play)
  • Active Play (contact and cuddling; physical feats; sports)
  • Creative Play (music; art; crafts; storytelling and jokes)
  • Pretend Play (actor play and dressing up; imaginary playmates; reemergence of pretending)
  • School Play (reading; writing; arithmetic; collecting facts; science)
  • Family (attachment and separation; family continuity; traditions)
