Growing Up Is Hard To Do, Role-Playing Will Help
Whimpers and whines coming from my four-year-old often lead to me commenting, “It is so tough being four, isn’t it?”. I usually say it pretty sarcastically but really, it IS tough being four… and five… and six… and thirty-six! Regardless of your age, the pressures of life are real to you. Although my daughter isn’t dealing with “big” stressors like financial decisions, medical treatments, or parenting issues…. for her, sleeping in a dark room all by herself or getting picked on by kids at school are HUGE stressors! Life IS hard… even for a four year old!
How Role-Playing Can Help
Role-playing is a great way for children to express their feelings. Allowing your child to act out the feelings that build up inside gives them an outlet to not only express their feelings but also allows them to process their feelings.
How to Engage in Role Playing
Naturally, a child will play out their feelings and desires all on their own. Playing WITH your child and bringing up some of the hard to handle situations they may have faced (or will face in the future), gives you a chance to take the pressure off those hard conversations. Talking about feelings can be difficult for ANYONE.
With a doll, like Lottie Dolls, my daughter and I can act out situations that might be bothering her. Topics that she might not understand, not be able to explain or even situations she may not WANT to share can be discussed from one Lottie Doll to the other. In turn, she can open up when it feels like it is the Lottie Dolls is the one dealing with this situations through role-playing instead of it being about HER real-life situations. Basically, it makes those hard topics, easy!
What are Lottie Dolls?
Lottie Dolls are 7.5-inch tall dolls that are designed to look like CHILDREN. No makeup, risque clothing, or curvy figures which allows your child to play without feeling inadequate. Made to imitate the proportions of an actual child makes Lottie Dolls much more modest and age-appropriate for children to play with.
