Today, psychologists are concerned about the quality of children’s play has changed in the current pre-school children: it is monotonous, individual and aggressive. One of the reasons for this unfortunate trend – fashion toys hindering the development of the baby, distort the emotional sphere of the child to form his negative character traits.
Much more than a game!
Toys for children – it is a necessary tool of knowing the world, which allows to solve problems and learn new actions. That’s why parents should be with full responsibility to the choice: take into account the age of the child, to check their sanitary – hygienic safety, know the criterion of psychological and pedagogical usefulness and harmfulness of “childhood friends”.
To know all this, it is necessary to have an idea of all the values of the games for the kids:
- game shaped the imagination of creativity;
- the game is a leading preschool activities that determines the development of his intellectual, moral, and physical strength;
- game is a kind of “school of arbitrary behavior” (the kid learn to manage realized his actions);
- child, learn to play, to express what he feels, and to understand them in others;
- game – “a school of morality” (fairy tale and the game helps to understand what is wrong, what is good and Verbal promises can be unsuccessful and long);
- in the game by repeating the practice of social, which is accessible understanding of the baby;
- child learn to communicate in the game knows itself and interacts with others.
