There is no denying that smart phones, tablets and apps can be great educational tools, but when it comes to supporting your child’s development, it should be a mix of traditional play as well as the latest tech toys – variation is key.

With hectic schedules and busy lives, it’s not surprising to hear that parents, not necessarily through any fault of their own, sometimes find it hard to dedicate as much time as they’d like to help their child’s development through play. Research conducted by Galt Toys shows that close to one in five parents put their children in front of the games console and one in six give them a smart phone or tablet to play with.

Two thirds of parents surveyed don't think they are as good at playing with their children as they would like to be, while 40% even feel self-conscious when playing.

So how can parents feel more confident about playing with their children? How do you use play and toys to help with your child’s development? What sort of toys are the best for different age ranges? Join our live show with Dr Miriam Stoppard, who will be answering these questions and more.
