Why You Should Let Your Child Have Playdates
Psychological Well-being

More often than not, playdates can lead to friendships, which are good for our psychological health. Research shows that people with extensive social networks tend to be happier.

Physical Health

Playdates can solidify our interpersonal connections. People with strong social bonds tend to have better immune systems and live longer too. They also encourage us to be physically active which is good for our physical and psychological health.

Education and Work

Play-dates give us an opportunity to bond with others, which fosters social connections. People with strong social networks are happier, and happier people are more successful at school and work.

Social Skills

Playdates facilitate social development by teaching children how to share, cooperate with others, and problem-solve.

Creating Parent Connections

They are an opportunity for parents to connect with other parents. This has a number of benefits, including a sense of community and social support. Both of these factors can make it easier for parents to adjust to life changes, including having children and moving to the UAE.
