Role-playing games are a way to show the creative abilities of the child during the game. Parents and teachers can use this type of play activity to educate the child and develop his various skills. During role-playing games, children can imagine themselves to be travelers in distant lands, doctors or teachers. They use their imagination to create imaginary worlds, developing important skills for themselves.
Why are role-playing games so important for a child? What is the best way to use this gaming method at home or at school? What specific actions should be taken to do this? Let’s consider in more detail.
What are role-playing games?
During role-playing games, children try on different roles (fireman, teacher, doctor), and then in the process of playing them demonstrate what they mean by this or that role. Although such games can occur anywhere, often enough children use toys for them, using them to create an imaginary world. Continue reading
Sooner or later, many children involved in sports think about quitting training. Sometimes this decision is a surprise for parents, but more often than not, certain signals precede it.
What reasons can push a child to quit playing sports?

When you voice safety rules to your child, you need to explain to them why this is important. You can achieve his submission by using the phrase: “Because I said so,” but this will not convince the child of the importance of the rule. Try to assure him that the rules are not needed to make his life less joyful, but to make him safe. The more fair and reasonable the rules seem to the child, the more likely that he will accept them and adhere to them.
Do not bully a child. If you do not want the child to climb trees, you should not tell him: “You will fall and turn your neck.” Say better: “You may fall, and you will be hurt.” If you exaggerate a possible danger, this can lead to one of two consequences (or both at once):
the child will cease to trust you. He will not believe you, because he understands: what you say is unlikely;
the child will believe you, but he will grow up with confidence that the world is a terrible place full of dangers.
When a child does not comply with the established rules, you must let him know that his dangerous behavior has consequences. Continue reading
The puberty period is the time of transition from childhood to adulthood, during which the child experiences emotional upheaval and physical changes. He is not an adult yet, but he can no longer be called a child. This period can be extremely confusing for the child and, as a result, lead him to irrational actions.
