Every day in the playground can be a new adventure - sometimes fun and sometimes not so fun. Play brings opportunities to mix with other children and provides an array of experiences from which we can learn about others and themselves.

Readers are encouraged to take time to observe the behaviours and moods of others and to make wise and safer choices about play mates. The strategies promoted encourage tolerance and acceptance of interpersonal different and wise choices with respect to interpersonal safety.
