I want us to play.

Think of the game, emphasizing the gerund: playing, action, doing.

The game involves; a doing framed in space and in time, which allows us to rise elsewhere, but knowing that we are limited by edges which in turn give wings to get out of them, not knowing where to arrive.

Let's see a child playing; your game is not developed in the air but it takes place in a certain time, a space where the activity and imaginary, or specific elements that make matter unfolds.

One way to understand the game would be like an activity without mandates, freely. For children to play freely, they should feel safe, be in an environment that contains them, ie, an external order allowing his inner freedom.

Game time is here and now, a spontaneous time.

A good way to accompany or play with a child is participating in the rules that characterize the game, whether express or implied. The important thing for the child is that not minimize the value of these rules, so we should not ignore them.

Playing the child is performing an activity for him very serious, taking his game, an end infinitely unpredictable.

I propose to take the time to watch them play, accompanying his game, without impositions, no rush, no ordering objectives; and I assure you will live a regressive experience, those childhood years, where we went into a safe but uncertain world, known but surprisingly, full of friendly characters and others feared ... but above all, a pleasant world!
