My daughter is 4 years old. She wants to keep playing all the time and in her way only. She avoids to play cricket, basketball, or puzzles where you can lose or you need to think in order to win. She also avoids skating, roller board or other things like this.
She generally prefers to play with doll set, kitchen set etc. She mimics everyday what she does in her school and turn it into a game. And she needs someone to play with her all the time. Unfortunately, there is no other kid around, not even a good park with some groups of kids to play with.
I'm an Open Source developer working around 14 hours per day. Hence I'm not able to give her sufficient time.
I want to set up her routine in such a way that she can engage herself for at least 2-3 hours without using a mobile. So that other family members are not full time busy either with their or her work.
I work from home all the time. Her mother & grand mother also take care of her. But as they're involved in other housework as well, they engage her hardly for 3-4 hours in a day. She takes the sleep of approx 10 hours, school (5 days in a week) of 3 hours, mobile for rhyme for 1 hour, homework for max 30 mins. Rest of the time she feels she is alone and no one is playing with her. She tries to keep her engaged in her imagination but not for long. And I'm not sure if talking to yourself in your imaginary games is good.
