October is an exciting month filled with candy and costumes. People love the excitement of dressing up and pretending to be someone they are not. Though it is a fun and thrilling holiday, it might raise some concerns for children who already feel a little different. For an adopted child, they might have the desire to be someone they can relate to.
Pumpkin Spice Latte’s, pumpkin muffins, and candy corn can only mean 1 thing…Fall is here and Halloween is just around the corner!
As Halloween approaches and the costumes come out in the stores, kids begin to wonder and begin thinking “What do I want to be?” Whether you agree with Halloween or not, playing dress up for a child is not only exciting and fun but is also a key developmental avenue of play.
