BIRDS FLY, FISH SWIM, CHILDREN PLAY…
A CHILD’S LANGUAGE IS GAME, WORDS ARE TOYS. That’s why children urge mom and dad to play games. Because children’s vocabulary is limited in the preschool period, right at this point GAME comes into play. I want to talk about 2 ways to contact children. 1. Game, 2. Feelings. Let’s talk about the game.
WE TRIED EVERYTHING NOW IT’S TIME TO TRY SOMETHING NEW THE GAME Let’s sit on the floor and join their world. Playing with the child for 10 minutes creates wonders. As I mentioned in the introduction, the game is the language of the child. Through the game, the child expresses his feelings and problems. He learns to know himself, to express, to think, to decide on his own. He learns to take responsibility, to share in cooperation. He develops his imagination, skills and creativity. The child knows where his pain is and reflects it to us through play. BELIEVE IN YOUR CHILD’S INTERNAL DEVELOPMENT AND HEALING CAPACITY!
Language development of children depends on their cognitive development. From this point of view, the child’s vocabulary repertoire is not as rich as adults. Children establish communication about what is going on in their world through play. The use of toys allows children to transfer their fears, anxieties, fantasies, and feelings of guilt to objects rather than people. While playing, children are less defensive about talking about their feelings that they see as part of the game. Expressing feelings through the use of materials provides an emotional distance to the events and the child expresses himself better. This is where the healing power of play comes into play. Another issue that is as effective as unconditional love in terms of the development of the child is undoubtedly play. parents open the door of communication with their children. Well, I seem to hear you say how to go to work, take care of the house and play games. You are right, at this point, I just say sit on the floor and trust your child! They will pave the way for you, trust your children’s inner capacity. Hope to be a playful parent.
