» The Peacable Home: Cooperative Games | Playfulness | Scoop.it

Then I discovered cooperative games.  As the name suggests cooperative games involve all the players working together to achieve an end goal, supporting each other, working as a team and hopefully bonding in the process.  The games themselves have a built in ‘opposition’ which might be racing against the night or the weather, but the participants themselves must all work cohesively in order to be successful and ‘win’.

These games have been a huge blessing in our house, giving us hours of co-operative fun and underscoring the values I hope to instill in my boys; kindness, cooperation and teamwork.  Rather than rejoicing in each other’s failures we can only be successful if we work as a team, just like in real life!

Dr. Amy Fuller's insight:

Cooperation is so much better for our brains than competition!
