I like the idea of thinking in terms of ‘playmates’ rather than ‘friends’ at a young age.

Hi! I’m new here to your blog and recently read this book, too. And just like you, I also had to pause and process for my initial reaction was worry inducing. It really shook my paradigm of being “child led.” but somehow both really resonates

with me. It also seems to contradict Dr. Peter Gray’s message, which also used to resonate with me too. I’m in the process of grappling both concepts. How do you reconcile these ideas? Another question, could you elaborate more on your approach of being present in a friendly way? Thank you so much for your wonderful insight.
