You can download a Word document one sheet set of instructions for the training game, ‘Child’s Play’ at the bottom of this page or follow the guidance below.
Participants must focus on a particular topic or a key question relating to the training that they are involved in. Ask participants to work in pairs. One person in the pair will act as ‘child’ and the other will need to explain the given topic or area of concern. The role of the ‘child is to only ask the question ‘why?’ Each time a new response is made the question ‘why?’ should be posed once again. This should happen until the topic is exhausted.
By using this training game, participants challenge each other to the core regarding a given problem, topic or area of concern.
Although sometimes frustrating, the game does mean that participants get to the route of a problem and often issues are often noted that were previously unseen.
