Racing around the neighborhood
Importance of playing in childhood is one of the critical phase for your child mental and physical strengths.
Your school age child is probably enthusiastic about more capable forms of play. he has a wonderful time racing around the neighborhood.
He/she climbs, jumps hops, skips turns himself upside and down inside out. Child wants to get places in a hurry, and so he takes to scooters, wagons bicycles and sketches.
As he plays by practice and practices, over and over again he mounts his bike, rides a few wobbly feet, falls with a crash, rise from the wreckage, and tries again as he practices, he build skills that are important to him now and for and for the rest of child life.
Child develops nerves and muscles by playing
Child develops nerves and muscles he learns many games that are a passport to the world of other children. he explores his talents and comes comes to accept game of his weakness. he plays by himself and with other youngsters. he place in his own style because he i special person, but he plays by the hour because he is a child.
Part of his play takes on a hand of magic ritual. he likes counting games. he likes to chant the nonsense over and over. he likes to jump over the sidewalk cracks so as not to “ break his mother’s back.” he enjoys counting the palings in a dense white convertibles, blue trucks , and planes in the church window. wishing on a star or a wishbone gives him a comforting sense of power.
Your child often works out bothersome feelings through his games, feelings through his games, feeling of fear for instance, may be dealt with in imaginary games about ghosts and witches, terrors of the unknown can be partly conquered when your child, in play catches “kills” the wicked giant.
Kids always want to try different
Youngsters at play frequently try out different, ways of being an adult. perhaps your little girl clomps around in high heeled “lady shoes” busily at work feedings, bathing, dressing and walking her “ babies” and your son, studying his future career, may join a bevy of future breadwinners who run across the backyard, ardently engaged in being firemen policemen, cowboys, and astronauts.
If your child is between ages of 6 and 8, he probably plays quite informally. he and his friends are apt to like games without too many rules, making up their own as they go along. they may care very little about team spirit, instead, they gather in small neighborhood clusters made up of both boys and girls. these clusters of friends are apt to change from day to day.
Child want to play with definite groups
When your child reaches the age of 9 or 10 however, he is apt to play larger most definite groups. he and his friends prefer games that have exact riles—riles which are handed on from one children’s group to another, belonging as be does to his own special world your younger cares very little about your ways of playing baseball, for instance. his ways are the ways of his gang—and he belongs to his own generation, not yours. and this is it should be. parents cannot relive their childhood through their children.
Your child want freedom to practice with his/her own age group.
Your son is apt to be keener about team sports than your daughter. Being an expert athlete is probably important to him. He may welcome your coaching. but he also will want the freedom to practice with his own age group.
Most girls are a bit bored by the team approach to games and by the drive to be to be a sports expert. society generally encourages them to tone down, rather than tone up, their muscles. although girls do, and should, enjoy physical activity, they are apt to run their attention to dancing, handicrafts, dramatics, and so on particularly as they reach age 10 or so.
