Re: SAHPs: How much do you play with your kids?

My kids are 5, 4, and 2. They play together, fight, and play some more all day long. I am present if they need something, need help with something, need help resolving a conflict, etc. But they come find me when they need something. I don't sit around watching them. I'd die of boredom! I don't see that as my role. I think it's better for them to play together. They don't need me hovering over them. I say let the fights happen and when you hear an argument you can go and help them talk through it. The more you do that, the more they will learn how to work out problems and will be able to do it a lot of the time without it escalating.
