Understanding Children's Play

Excerpt

The development of a healthy personality has its beginnings with the beginning of life itself and it is generally recognized today that the groundwork for a lifetime of mental health is laid during the early years.

Parents, teachers, and others who deal with young children have an important role to play in these years. In the promotion of good mental health, it is essential that we help them to acquire insight into the child's emotional needs and the exigencies of his adjustment to life as he learns to understand himself and find his way in the world.

By presenting the play experiences of children within the framework of their living problems, this volume and its companion booklets will give to these adults who help shape their lives a fuller understanding of the significance of children's play, and offer them valuable aids in fostering the development of productive, well-integrated human beings.
