Importance of Playing in a Child’s Life

Preschool-age children spend most of their time playing games. Sometimes, grown-ups think that children spend waste their time playing, because a game may be considered an idle pastime and horseplay. In fact, playing games is a leading activity for preschoolers. This means that playing is the activity crucial for the development of children of this age. The developmental impact of playing on the child is impossible without the participation of an adult. The younger a kid is, the more often and deeply his/her parents should get into the process of game. When a baby is old enough to play, his/her mom and dad are his favorite game partners. Parents can initiate playing games themselves or support their kids’ initiative. At an older age, parents can act as external observers, assistants, and consultants. In any case, an adult acts as an introducer opening the game world for a kid. Being engaged in playing, a child develops physically, mentally and personally. Let us consider in more detail how games affect the development of a child. Development of the cognitive sphere. When playing, a child actively learns the world around him, gets acquainted with the properties of objects, their purpose. This aspect of the impact of playing on a child’s development manifests itself at a very early age, when the child is not able to play yet, and he or she only manipulates objects: puts toy blocks one on top of the other, puts balls into a basket, and pops toys into his/her mouth. Together with the assimilation of new knowledge about the world around us, playing develops cognitive processes: attention, memory, and thinking. Being formed at an early age, attention concentrating, analyzing, information memorizing skills will be very useful for the child for when he/she starts school; Physical growth and development. When playing, a child learns different movements, improves his/her motor skills. Active games are loved by all children: they enjoy running, jumping, hopping, turning somersaults, kicking a ball. Playing such games, a child learns to have a masterful command of movements of his/her body, acquires dexterity and good muscle tone, which is very important for a growing organism; Development of imaginative thinking and imagination. Being engaged in playing, a child attributes new properties to the object, models his/her own imaginary world. At this moment, the child himself/herself understands that everything is happening for fun, while playing, he/she really thinks leaves to be money, stones and pebbles to be potatoes for cooking soup, and raw sand to be dough for pastries with appetizing savour. The development of imagination and imaginative thinking is the most important aspect of effect of playing, because the child has to make nonroutine decisions in order to realize the plot of his/her game. However, in these latter days, this property of the game is being exterminated by children’s toys manufacturers, who develop and create a wide variety of play sets for all occasions. Children’s kitchens, laundries, sets to play store that are hardly distinguishable from real ones deprive games children play of the element of fantasy and imagination; Development of speech and communication skills. When playing an action or role-playing game, a child constantly has to walk through his/her part, act out dialogues between the characters of the game. Playing games together with other kids contributes not only to the development of speech, but also to the development of communication skills: children need to outline roles, agree on the rules of the game, and keep in touch directly during the game. The child learns not only to reach an agreement, but also to observe the rules established; Development of the motivational sphere. Action and role-playing games are based on the fact that a child imitates an adult person. When playing, the child behaves as if he or she tried being an adult, at the level of the game, tries to perform his/her functions. Such behaving during the game shapes the child’s motivation to become a real adult, that is, to get a profession, earn money, start a family of his/her own. Of course, to have the ‘correct’ motivation formed during the game, the child should have a positive example of adults’ behaving around him/her; Development of moral qualities. Although the plots of children’s games are fictitious, the conclusions that a child may make from game situations are the real ones. The game is a kind of polygon in which the child learns to be honest, bold, determined, friendly, and well-intentioned. Of course, forming moral qualities involves not only children’s playing, but also the presence of an adult who will help to see the game situation more deeply and make right conclusions; Development and correction of the emotional sphere. When playing, a child learns to sympathize, support, be pitiful, and express sympathy. Sometimes, it happens that the emotional problems of a child: fear, anxiety, aggression – ‘break through’ the games. While playing, a child may give vent to the emotions, and it is possible live go through the difficult situations with the child. Unfortunately, in these days areal spontaneous children’s game is being replaced by training in game form or playing computer games. We must understand, but neither of these activities is, as a matter of fact, the game that gives so much to the development of a child. Of course, real and ‘quality’ children’s games are not always comfortable for adults, because they are tents made from pillows and blankets, construction set towns all over the house and a mess. However, we should not limit the child in his/her imagination and playing, because they are right when they say that everything is good in its season, and childhood is the right time to play games. The child, who has been allowed to play as much as he/she wanted, will be better prepared for the transition to a new step in his/her development.

How to Choose Quality Toys for Your Child

Careful parents are trying to give their children all the best: food, toys, training. Today, shelves of stores are attracting customers with a great variety of goods, making it difficult for the parents to choose. How to select something that will really be useful for your kid? We will tell you about the factors mindful and reasonable parents are guided by when choosing toys. Crucial Point The first thing you should pay attention to is whether the toy corresponds to the age of your child. If it turns out to be too simple, the kid will be bored with it, and if is too complicated, it your child will be annoyed and disappointed. In any case, the toy must be understandable for children. Here you can be guided by an age index, which is always on the packages. However, it should be remembered that the development of each individual child is also individual, and a toy or game, which is suitable for one three-year-old boy, may be too complex for another boy of the same age or even for the older one. Secondly, when buying a toy, you should ask yourself, if it will have a developmental effect for your child. The game should help the kid to consolidate the knowledge and skills acquired, as well as teach him/her something new. It should be understandable and open for playing, leave a lot to your child’s imagination and allow variations of the game combinations. An ideal educational toy for a child of any age is a common ball. If your son or daughter is still learning how to crawl, a constantly elusive object will be a wonderful incentive for them to catch up. If your kid is a toddler, the ball can help him/her to develop coordination of movements and overall motor skills. The ball can be kicked, come up with, held with your kid’s little hands, tossed up, caught, etc. And let’s bear in mind sports games playing with this object. Sometimes, parents want to buy not an educational toy for their child, but the most common one to please him/her. In this case, you need to decide what kind of semantic load it carries. The characters of some contemporary aggressive-minded cartoons or ‘evil’-natured toys affect a young researcher’s state of mind negatively. In contrast, a good toy can cause a baby’s joy and positive emotions. A good mood is the key to the successful development of a kid. Moreover, the real-looking shapes of such a toy will create a correct idea of ​​colours and sizes existing in nature. Therefore, violet elephants with wings or monsters are not quite suitable for a young child. Attention to details Another important issue that parents face when choosing a toy is their child’s interests and preferences. When kids arrive at the age of two, the propensity for certain things and games begins to develop in them. So, parents should choose a toy, which corresponds to their kid’s emerging tastes. However, do not forget that your kid needs a full development, which forms his physical, cognitive and creative abilities. The best option is the traditional golden mean. They should as many toys that develop the child’s talents and abilities as possible in his/her collection. But along with them, there must be others, which allow developing alternative skills. Modern stores offer a variety of toys, capable of variation games. If your child likes to collect action figures by putting them in special cells that correspond the figures contour and shape, then he/she familiarizes himself/herself with the world around and learns to think logically, while developing gross motor skills. In addition to such an educational toy, you can buy toy bricks or children’s puzzles that will entice the child and can be used to create interesting picture. Also, such toys can be used as ‘construction material’: to build a house, a fortress or a fire station - whichever your and your child’s imagination allows. In this case, the development of spatial thinking and imagination comes into play. Do Not Skimp on the Most Important Thing The last, but most important, thing to remember when choosing a toy for a child is its safety. To prevent harm that may be done to the child, it is important to study several parameters. First, you need to carefully inspect the material, coating, and dye. All this should not be toxic and must have a pleasant surface structure. Second, the toy should not have small parts, sharp edges and breakable parts that the child can swallow. The size of a toy for the youngest children should be such that no kid could put the entire toy into his/her mouth. The toy should be hygienic, cleanable or washable, so as not to become a hotbed of bacteria. It should be strong, do not fall apart and do not break. Sharp sounds can harm your child’s nervous system: he or she may be frightened by a buzzing phone or a terribly snarling robot. Therefore, give preference to toys with soft pleasant sounds. The color of the toy should not be flamboyant or offend the eye; no toy should emit an unpleasant smell. To completely make sure that the toy meets all quality standards, examine its certificate thoroughly. Do not buy too cheap things for your kid: those made in China and sold at low prices have unsavoury reputation because of dangerous substances containing in them. Remember that the purchase of toys must be approached consciously. Then your kid will have more joy and interest in learning the world around him/her.
