Research has shown that children crave time with parents. It makes them feel special The Child Development Institute recommends that parents should get into a child's world, play along and have fun. The result? "Playing with kids builds a bond that will last forever. It lets the child know he or she is loved and appreciated. It opens the door for sharing problems and concerns when the need arises. It helps the parent get to know and understand the uniqueness of each child".At Micro we too believe that family time is important for the soul.
