When Children Tell a Story


Monday’s Parenting Thought
When children tell a story …
  • They can pretend. Learning to pretend and to know the difference between pretend and real is part of growing up.
  • They can create something they are proud of.
  • They can have fun with other people – each person can add to one story or two people can tell their own story about the same subject to see how different the stories can be.
  • They can use their story to give them ides for other types of art – drawing, painting sculpting, dancing, singing, acting, etc.
