Game Answering Buttons Red area Yellow area Blue area Green area To parents What parents want to see most is their child growing up happy. Parent-child games make children feel love and warmth from their parents as well as experience happiness and sense of achievement by playing. It is an effective way to help children build a sense of security and develop self-confidence. “What can parents and children play?” “How to play?” is a troubling question for many parents. Choosing a suitable game for all family members to play together and with effective and scientific guidance will further develop a child’ s various abilities, and thus make parent-child interaction more efficient and more valuable. There are two kinds of relationships in parent-child games that are based on kinship. The first one is horizontal, in which the parents and the child are equal playmates. The other one is vertical, in which parents are leading and teaching the child. These two kinds of relationships make parent-child games both emotional and educational. These two characteristics are the most valuable elements of a parent-child game. Key points 1. Help children understand the rules of the game and distinguish what animal sound it is. In order to distinguish different kinds of animal sounds, children should understand the differences of various animal sounds first. There are four kinds of sounds in “Happy Circus” . Parents can click on the “Help” button first to let the child understand the differences. After the child is familiar with these, parents can then let the child play the game. 2. “Why can’ t he or she do it right?” Don’ t worry; the memory of your child is gradually strengthening! The memorizing process includes “remembering” and “recalling” . When a child is paying attention to the question (or listens to the animal sound sequence) from Beyond Tablet, he or she is actually in the process of “remembering” . The use of a finger to select the animals on the game map is the process of “recalling” . There will be one more animal sound added in each level. With t he r e p e ti ti v e o c c u rre n c e o f th e previ ous ani mal sound sequence and the incremental increase in the number of animal sounds, children need to remember more and more content. Each child (and adult) has a memory pocket, for collection and reviewing what they see and hear. The richer the contents of the memory pocket, the cleverer the child is. When they grow up, these memories become part of them and affect every step of their lives. 3. Do not always let the child play on his or her own. Play together to help establish a sense of rules. Understand Stimulate the child’s curiosity and desire to the purpose explore. of the game Before the game Parents need to know in advance what their child is recently interested in, so as to better guide the child to play the game.

During game play, parents can help the child understand the rules of the game. Having the parent personally practicing the rules of the game in order to let the child understand and respect these rules is a prerequisite for success.
