How many games to play for the child? Less is sometimes more


Kids are crazy when they get a new game, so most parents tend to buy a lot of toys. However, this does not work in the long run.

Maybe asking children to disagree, but in terms of child development and creativity it is better to attack them with fewer games. In addition to numerous parental and caregiving observations, there is also evidence from studies that the quality of children's play activity is impaired when they are stacked at home. Conversely, if they choose from a smaller amount, children will generally be more creative, focused, and more engaged in their fantasy, which will improve their ability to think.

How many are you?

Of course, one might ask what exactly "many" and "few" mean in this context. In one experiment, for example, the participating children were first selected and then sixteen played - this is how we measure the proportions. In addition, according to a recent recent article, English children have an average of 238 games (!) - while their parents say they do not use much more than a dozen ("favorites") those who swear by a completely play-free kid's room, we shouldn't go to this end. Just ask the magician before buying another toy (especially for 1-2 year olds) is it really needed?, and will be happy to use it for a longer period of time (which requires you to watch the game, especially at this age you will forget the roulette).

And it's worthwhile to keep track of the games from time to time and get rid of the ones that your child has obviously outgrown. It may help to say that if we have more versions of one type - or even more of the same game - we only want to keep one. But you don't have to throw or play the games: just leave a limited amount of room in the room and keep the rest strictly in front of the kids - for example, hide in boxes, kids room is more and more reminiscent of a play store offer when there are piles of never-used or very infrequent stuffed animals, soldiers, cars, balls, xylophones, miniatures, gnomes, princes, princes creating the ideal environment for our child. Living in the first three years, they still don't really control our attentionand as a result, childhood attention can be diverted much more easily with newer and newer objects. In playhouses, for example, it is easy to see younger children jumping from one device to another instead of mapping out all the games of their choice.Less is more - How much fun should a child have?

Siblings and parents are better off

If children are relatively less involved in play, then that's what it is helps development in important areassuch as roles, expression, fine motor coordination, or problem solving. On the other hand, if gambling becomes the main rewarding, rewarding method in our family, then we may be more inclined to look for middlings that are important, whether they are sports, cinema, or more. If there are fewer games, the brothers and sisters also buy less, though many people also probably accumulate the games to make sure every child has enough - you can play games with each other. All the same, keep in mind that parents can make a positive difference if they decide to play less: they have to pack less, save the environment, spend less, spend more, they also have to move their own imaginations betterwhen thinking about what to do with their children.Related articles in Baby Heading:
