A step-by-step guide to play the game

1

Gather the players in front of the panel and give them a few moments to identify the different situations. Give additional explanation if needed (see additional game information).

2

After exploring the panel, ask the children to formulate their opinion about the situations. Suggested questions:

  • What actions are beneficial for the development of the baby? Which are not? Are some of the situations risky? Why? Why not?
  • What are the problems young parents and their babies face (on the street)?
  • How can such problems be solved or avoided?
3

Finally, reflect with the players about the development of children. Suggested questions:

  • What is the importance of play in development? How can we stimulate this?
  • Why do babies need to be stimulated? What can be done to do this effectively? What should be avoided?
  • How can one stimulate a baby in a safe way?
  • Who needs to take the responsibility to stimulate a child (father, mother, brother, sister, kindergarten teacher, ...)?

Variations

  • Theatre: create a theatre stage with chalk or tape. Then, divide the players in pairs and let them pick a situation. They can give a twist to the situation by adding improvisation. After a while, shout 'SWITCH'. Another team continues to act out the story. Continue this process until the story has a proper end. To conclude, reflect and discuss which elements were present in the different roleplays.
  • Be the parent: give a teddybear to a pair of players. The players need to take care of the stuffed animal. Discuss their actions and reflect on good and bad parenting.

Specific learning objectives

  • Learn on the consequences of parental behaviour on a child's development
