Parent-to-Parent Video: The Importance of Playdates

Published on: December 30, 2013

ParentMap editor Linda Morgan talks to King 5 about playdates -- why they're important, and how to set them up. Her tips for successful playdates:

1. Invite a friend your child already knows.

2. Set guidelines so kids know what to expect, and have your child take some responsibility for her friend.

3. Have a new activity to introduce -- but ask kids what they'd like to do.

4. Stay in the same room as very young kids, and within earshot of older kids.
