Three-year-old Ben lives in the country, with no other preschoolers nearby. His parents wonder whether it is worth driving Ben into town once a week to participate in a peer play group. What advice would you give Ben’s parents, and why?

I would definitely advise Ben’s parents to drive into town so he can participate in a peer play group. If Ben has an opportunity to interact with other preschoolers, he should have the chance too. This will help him develop skills as the other kids will be around the same stage of development that he is in. By interacting with other preschoolers, he is going to learn from them.

I would advise the parents to take ben to peer play group weekly and to try to find other activities for him to participate in. Him being around other children will expand his social skills, language skills, and help him throughout the different developmental stages. I’ve witnessed this first hand, my best friends daughter wasn’t talking at all but once she started daycare and started coming around my son more her language skills developed and her vocabulary blossomed.
