Kids love games. They will play the same game over and over, long after most adults grow weary of it. So why is this such a good thing for children and why should parents encourage and play games with their children.
Children can learn a tremendous amount from games. Many games are designed to review skills that are important for children to learn. The best part is, children will experience many repetitions of the same skill when it is disguised in a game but would tire of it if the repetitions came in the form of drill and practice.
