Is play good or bad for the developing child?

An example of my non-fiction work.

"It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye."

A very old and well known phrase, but how true is it? How dangerous can the world of play really be to young, vulnerable children? For something lighthearted and fun, games can be a serious part of a child's development.

As shown in the animal kingdom, games play a crucial role into the training of the young for the life ahead of them. Young lion cubs will often fight and prowl, teaching skills for hunting and fighting for dominance. Likewise, children's games bare resemblances to the things to come. Many children play house, teaching domestic skills from an early age. Other role plays like doctor or school can explore professions. Cops and Robbers or War games show the violence in the world, but also instill justice and ambition in children. Sports teach teamwork, appreciation, and drive.
