Mum or dad
Activities and meals are planned out to the minute
Somewhat scheduled but there is always room for change
We go with the flow - When we are hungry, we eat, when we are tired, we sleep, and so forth.
Different every day but usually determined by my own routine (working, daycare, etc)
You and your child are playing ‘school.’ Your child is the teacher and you are the student. You must do everything the teacher says or you will be put into the time out chair. When you start playing a different way, he gets mad and claims “I don’t want to play anymore!”
You and your child are playing ‘house.’ You guide the dolls around the house and your child mimics what you do.
You and your child are playing ‘superheros.’ You are hurt and your child is going to rescue you by flying in
You and your child are playing ‘rock star.’ You are both in a band. Your child is the lead singer and you are the back-up dancer/drummer or audience.
You and your child are playing ‘fix it.’ You are instructed to show your child things in the house that are broken and he/she will fix it with his toolbox.
Your child doesn’t play fantasy games yet/anymore.
