The latest trend has parents sharing hilarious pics of their little ones making huge messes. These parents are kidding about the shame – but is it actually good for toddlers to be messy?
Research suggests that these “naughty” tykes learn better than their tidier peers. Explains Pediatrician Dr. Tanya Altmann, “That’s how they learn, by exploring all their senses,” whether it’s splashing in mud-puddles or painting themselves with yogurt.
Especially in the kitchen, letting them explore and play with food can lead toddlers to be more open to a variety of healthy foods. Plastic Surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon adds that it’s great to let kids play outside and get dirty.
The takeaway? The next time your kids trash the house, snap that pic and share it online – then let them go out and make mud pies!
