Expert encourages parents to play and joke with their kids

Speaking to Briefly News, Jonathan Hoffenburg manager of The Parent Centre says that humour is a very positive coping mechanism; pranks and teasing can become part of a loving-hearted family culture.

"Parenting is constantly changing as your child changes, a good parent knows their child and humour is a great way to link, bond, and maintain the special uniqueness that is your family.
"Play, teasing and pranks are fine, and accept being teased and pranked in return (like the dad in the clip) as long as there is love, respect, and care," Jonathan shared.
