I Find Playing With My Child So Boring. What Can I Do?

By Martha Deiros Collado

Talking Sense with Dr Martha

Monday, 1 August

Children want to play all day and it can feel relentless and dare I say it, even boring sometimes. What does play mean to your child? How can you be most effective when you join in play? And are there times when you can say no to your child and that be ok too? Dr Martha talks through all of this in more on this episode on play.
