My Daughter Engages In Excessive Role-Playing
by Cassandra Christ
My 3-year old likes to pretend she's someone else (mostly a princess or Peter Pan). She likes to give everyone around her a role to play also. This is fun every once in a while - even once a day - but lately she's been doing it all the time. Today she and I were Peter Pan and Wendy (respectively) for 8 hours. I think this might be too much, but I'm not sure. And if it is, I'm really not sure what to do about it.
I should add that I'm a single mother living and raising her abroad, that she is an only child and that there have been no recent upheavals or changes in our lives or schedules.
