In a stressful and confusing environment, children often spend time playing to help self-reassure, gain a sense of control and sort their emotions. A play for a child offers a powerful and robust tool to promote peace, trust and empathy. These qualities can help children navigate changing times and insecurity. Present news, disease, divorce, a loved one's death or movements can be major stress sources for children. Healthy stress management is so important for children because stress can affect the brain development of children.
