This week, Rona and I take this listener question from Anna: “I just watched your video about kids needing unstructured playtime.  I have a question about how to get my 2 yr old son to play more independently of me.  He will sometimes sit and play with his toys, but not for very long. He seems to prefer us to read to him or ‘entertain’ him in some way. How can I encourage independent, imaginative play?”

Please check out my podcast with Rona Renner either here on the Greater Good website, or here on iTunes.  Happy listening!
