The Influence of color on children’s development
Children are our all. And we put a lot of effort to grow up healthy, develop physically, mentally and spiritually. The situation surrounding the child, is an important factor. Decorating the interior of a child, you need to consider various aspects. Will tell you about some of them.
All loving parents trying to provide children with the most comfortable living conditions. How color can affect the baby’s development and the formation of his character? As through the use of color to help the child to cope with difficulties or to escape from negative situations? Experiment with the design of the nursery, not forgetting that the disposition of the child may not coincide with yours. Let’s watch his mood and status and act accordingly.
Impact color: misconceptions and realities
The first misconception. Colors affect everyone equally. And in the book of Goethe, “the theory of color”, and modern tool for businessmen “How to manage people with color” or a book on Feng Shui are the same principles of the influence of color on humans.Actually it is not so. Each color has its meaning only within a particular culture. For example, for a European, white symbolizes purity and innocence, and for the citizen of China – the death and the funeral. At the same time, in the Chinese tradition, the color of knowledge – blue, and the European – yellow: it stimulates the activity of the brain. However it is not necessary to paste over the wall children’s yellow and blue Wallpaper in the hope that it will stimulate the mental development of the baby. We must remember that colors affect us not objectively, directly to the subconscious and physiology, but rather subjectively, through the cultural environment. And it is unlikely in practice a mixture of data from the European psychological literature, and tenets of the teachings of Feng Shui will have a special effect.
The second misconception. Color can come to the rescue of the child against his own will. For example, a child learns it doesn’t matter and doesn’t want to play sports. Wanting to help him to find inner strength, you change the color scheme of the interior: now it dominates the red stimulating activity. And wait for the result.
Actually. From this approach should be abandoned. Every person has a special temperament, temperament, and accordingly an individual reacts to events and impacts. If the child is withdrawn and tends to be in the clouds, red Wallpaper and furniture will not make him an excellent student and a football star. Yes, they will stimulate activity, but it is likely to remain internal. Moreover, perhaps the child will be to suppress it, to keep his calm. Such internal conflict can even lead to neurosis.
White room: the energy of life
In many Nations the white color symbolizes good luck, happiness, life. According to some beliefs, if in white to paint the walls inside the house, then it will be peace, but if the doorpost is every man coming into the shelter, leave your evil outside. White is able to become a great healing color, as it brings the hope, energy and power conversion. It effectively tones the body and has a beneficial effect on closed and tense children, their self-esteem increases. However, the dominant white can cause a feeling of strength and superiority over others, as well as an overly sterile spaces. It is best used in combination with other colors.
