In this modern age, technology and media content are inescapable – and parents should not be trying to escape. Media content in moderation is exceptionally valuable teaching material – whether watching an educational video about wildlife or an age-appropriate adventure story where characters learn challenging lessons and moral values. All of this is excellent fodder for beneficial pretend play!
The Playroom Fairy’s recommendations come with specific questions to ask your children or points to talk about relating to the film. There is also guidance for how to approach particularly challenging subjects. When parents capitalize on what a film has to teach, children receive an influx of play inspiration. Film can help them learn by observing the experiences of characters they can relate to, and provides a platform for children and parents to discuss complex social interactions. Movies also make excellent supplementary education, providing rich historical and cultural context.
