The best toys a child can use are those he makes with his own hands. The toys so freely used today supplant the desire to create with the desire to buy. Children easily learn covetousness by seeing toy windows, toy shops and the toys of their playmates. Toys are painted in bright colors to catch the eyes of children. Toys are made to be active to attract the attention of children. Every means of salesmanship is employed to sell toys. Every advantage is taken of child psychology in the efforts to load the child’s arms with worthless toys–toys that last but a day and are forgotten.
Many factors in modern child life are unnatural and detrimental to child development. We do too much for the children. We teach them depenence. They should learn independence. They should be self-reliant. They should be permitted to depend on their own ingenuity. Let them build and create for themselves.
Young ducks raised on hard floors, and never allowed in the water, never learn to swim. Their instinct for swimming is suppressed and, finally, lost altogether. Young children reared in city apartments never learn to create. Their creative instincts are suppresed. They need more of nature and less of books–more opportunity to create and less toys.
Some children do not seem to be able to focus on anything for very long.How can we help those children to become self-engaging and not so dependent on being entertained?
Although your children need your attention and love, they do not need you to supply a lot of activities. When not dependent on external stimulation, even a toddler can be engaged with nothing but a thread in her hands for a long time. Children are often busy for hours playing outside with no toys, acting self-made dramas, building mud castles, watching ants and more. Truly they are masterful at focusing on whatever they freely choose.
Long attention span is the child’s nature, A child who expects life to revolve around her, tends to become demanding and in turn unable to do without constant attention.Toys that take the initiative out of the child’s hands.Even educational toys often fly in the face of education and of self-reliance.
