The Benefits of Pretend Play To Your Child's Development

The first time I encountered my son role-playing, he was Buzz Lightyear. After a while, he became Ben 10. Recently, when people would ask him his name, he would say, “I am IronMan”.
As parents, we may think little of it, but according to many child experts, role-playing or pretend play is not just senseless playing but is, in fact, essential to a child’s emotional, mental, intellectual, and even physical development. It is part of a child’s learning mechanism.
