H2S Connection: Parents you can reinforce ‘school skills’ through play at home by spending time each day to create a learning experience with a game, puzzle, book or journal, this can help prep the mind for academic work. There are new games in the Nigerian market that fits all ages, so the game can be played by several generations and all ages, none is left out.
