Part 1. How is the game useful?

Conversation overheard
Dad son 3-4 years old: - That you all play and play! I would do something useful: I would take the coloring or put the puzzles !!!

Most adults believe that the game is a waste of time and effort, so they consider it their duty to take the child "useful" (from their point of view) things: drawing, reading, dancing, making handicrafts, etc. And demand creates supply - now the number of so-called “developmental activities” has increased significantly, where the emphasis is on the development of cognitive processes: attention, memory, thinking, and learning to read, write, count, and other skills. The importance of this development is beyond doubt if (!) The importance of the game is not missed. “Poor” preschooler in our time is so busy that he simply does not have time to just play. But the game is the leading activity of the child, i.e. such “activity, in connection with the development of which the most important changes occur in the psyche of the child and within which mental processes develop,preparing the transition of a child to a new stage of its development ”(Psychological Dictionary / edited by VP Zinchenko, 1998).

A mocking attitude to the game on the part of the parents, the desire to switch the child to study gives rise to an internal conflict: the child’s need to play and the parent’s demand “not to engage in this nonsense, but to learn” come into conflict. As a result, there is a feeling of guilt, which outwardly manifests itself in passivity, insecurity, low self-esteem.

So, the advantages of the game. It is in the game a child:

  • knows the world around us. He performs thousands of manipulations with objects, discovering the world of forms, spatial relationships, cause-effect relationships, etc .;
  • develops coordination of movements, including fine motor skills, which is very important in the future for mastering the letter. The child undresses and puts on his toys, builds houses from cubes, the designer folds, after all, he simply feeds his teddy bear (he must also be able to get into his mouth!).
  • develops speech. A kid has all the toys spoken, even cars, not to mention dolls, bunnies and dinosaurs, while using words that he practically does not use in communication with parents and other adults;
  • develops imagination.So at the same child at different times a stick can be a gun, and a fishing tackle, and a sword, and a horse. And the plot of the game can take place so that Steven Spielberg just rests;
  • develops self-esteem and faith in yourself. Since children often play what they do (and if they don't, they just change the rules of the game), the game doesn’t make them uncomfortable or inadequate (of course, if an adult doesn’t watch their game). A child in a game sets himself such tasks, the solution of which gives him pleasure, allows him to be the best in his eyes;
  • knows the world of social roles and professions. A child, introducing himself as a mom, dad, cook, seller, etc., “tries on” these roles;
  • develops the ability to manage their emotions and behavior. In an effort to be like his hero, the kid, for example, does not climb with his fists on the offender, but tries to resolve the dispute with words;
  • acquires the first skills of interacting with others. When a child begins to play with other children, he learns to yield somewhere, and somewhere, on the contrary, to defend his interests; learn to lose and win with dignity; learn to share; finally, he learns to respect the wishes of others (and does not grow as an egoist who gets used only to receive).

Therefore, let's not, firstly, prevent the child from playing when he plays, and, secondly, teach him to play when he does not succeed.

In the next article, read about how the game changes when a child grows up; what kids play up to 2 years old play, what game plots are preferred by children of preschool age, and also about how teenagers are built in the game.
