English term or phrase: role play
Role play with your children "what if" situations to encourage awareness and problem solving.
Heather Laidlaw
Portuguese translation:Represente, participe de, exercite, pratique
Explanation:
There are several synonyms for role play in this sense - portray, do, perform, enact, take the part of - as there is not a direct translation of role play into Portuguese. As a suggestion:

"Represente (ou participe de, ou exercite, ou pratique) situações do tipo "o que aconteceria se" com seus filhos para incentivar..."

I hope it helps.
