You say you love your children and are concerned they learn today’
So am I that’s why I’m providing a variety of kinds of play.
You’re asking me the value of blocks and other such play
Your children are problem solving and will use these skills everyday
You’re asking what’s the value of having your children play
Your daughter is creating a tower; she could be a builder one day
You’re saying you don’t want your son to play in that ‘sissy’ way
He’s learning to cuddle a doll; he may be a father one day
You’re questioning the interest centres, they just look like useless play
Your children are making choices; they’ll be on their own one day
You’re worried you’re children aren’t learning and later they’ll have to pay
But they are learning a pattern for learning for they will be learners always.
