Teach Your Child to Play Independently

How to Foster Your Child’s Imagination and Independence
(While Getting Some Time for Yourself!)

PLAY is the work of childhood... not adulthood!

Listen, I enjoy playing with kids as much as the next person. Heck, I built an entire career around teaching children skills through play!

That said, as a parent, my brain has already mastered all the skills that playing trucks, princesses, superheroes, and tea parties imparts. It’s fun for a while, but then it gets boring—fast.

Not to mention, I have a to-do list as long as my arm (and getting longer every moment I sit here building the 4th LEGO set today!)

Over my career as an early interventionist, parenting coach, and Mom, I’ve taught thousands of kids to play by themselves—and now I want to share it with you!

Enter: The Independent Play Workshop!

Turn "Mom, Look!" Into "Mom, Relax!"

Independent play is not just a fancy term for leaving your kids alone.

It’s actually a powerful way to help them grow and learn while giving yourself some much-needed time and space.

You’ll also enjoy your kids more when you do play with them because you’re not burned out or bored. 

Independent play is a win-win for everyone!
