Let`s draw?

to the Coded da Vinci`s masterpieces are far to a scribble of your kid. In the first only symbols, and the child`s drawing - reflection of his soul, feelings, the attitudes towards themselves, to a family and to the world which surrounds it are hided. It is simple to make out all this provided that you will pick up a right code, the psychologist Elena Voskovskaya considers.

the Ciphered message

If you tell that you search and studying of keys to interpretation - a tedious task and where as it is easier to inquire in confidential conversation at the kid about all his fears, alarms, pleasures and grieves, then will be wrong. You, probably, and on yourself know how even the adult sometimes can be difficult suddenly to take and open soul to the interlocutor. And to find necessary for this word, especially not everyone manages. How it is possible to hope that four-year-old the baby suddenly will open a small mouth and will pronounce such adult words how “sympathy“ or “antipathy“, “tranquility“ or “alarm“, “harmony“ or “disorder“? He also - that does not understand the feelings and does not know, how exactly they are called. And here drawing gives to the child the chance to express what he for the present cannot understand and put into words. Drawing for it - not art, and the speech which he did not learn to use properly yet. But, becoming the creator of the drawn little men and figures, he as the true artist, feels full, not limited freedom. Of course, it does not take into head to shift the feelings to a clean sheet, small fingers conduct a pencil, and from - under it there is a window to the soul of the little creator.

Age features

Analyzing drawing, consider age of the child. In two years he will draw sticks, circles, small squares and, having only represented them, to think out that they it and as to call them. By three years the kid has a desire to draw little men. But only he plainly cannot draw them. At it the circle with a mug turns out (head) to which sticks are attached (hands and legs). And here in four years to a circle it already attaches an oval (trunk), and drawing in itself becomes more difficult. In five years he dashingly adds to the little men such necessary parts as a mouth, a nose, eyes, fingers, hair. In six - seven years at the little man appear a neck, bends on hands and legs, clothes and different hairdresses. Here psychologists at an intelligence quotient of the child are guided by these age features of drawing. If in seven years the kid still continues to draw circles and sticks, parents should see it how their kid develops.

Psychologists recommend to begin with

“interpretation“, only when the child is four years old. However you can read drawing and the three-year-old baby, but here not keys to the code, but own feelings will be useful to you rather. Look at drawing and try to understand what emotions it causes in you. You should not deliberate long over it, trust the intuition. Drawing can seem dark and dim, bright and light, cheerful or sad, heavy or easy. If you find in it only a positive, so nothing disturbs the child if in drawing the negative prevails, you should find its reason and whenever possible to eliminate it. But before you have to remember whether offended who your kid the day before. As a rule, kids long do not hold offense, but if it did not pass yet before he took a pencil in hand, then will surely pour out on a sheet of paper. And when the good mood will be restored, he will start drawing only positive pictures over again.

Keys to little men

Even the small child knows that we think the head, and therefore in it force. If he drew to the little man a little head, so does not consider himself as the clever boy or the girl, and it does it unfortunate. If he drew in detail all body fatly, and the head hardly considerably, so is excessively shy and timid.

the Head has to control a trunk, and the neck is for this purpose necessary. In four years or five years the kid even does not remember it and molds the head directly on a trunk. But then understands that the head will not turn without neck. The body for it is associated with desires and feelings, and the head - with reason which has to operate a body. If the child draws the thick, fatly drawn neck, so he often has strong desires which he nevertheless tries to control. But if a neck short, then feelings nevertheless win against reason it and if a neck thin and indistinct, then on the contrary. Big shoulders - the child considers himself strong, and narrow shoulders speak about his weakness. The large trunk testifies to the same force, disproportionately large - to unsatisfied desires. The sickly trunk shows that the child does not believe in himself at all, and a task of parents - to help it to overcome this complex.

the Person with carefully traced details (eyes, eyebrows, eyelashes, a nose, a mouth, a chin) says

that the kid is anxious with the appearance. The large chin - in your kid here - here will wake up the leader.

Large ears are drawn by children who got used that they are abused eternally and criticized. So they show that the criticism of adults settles in them heavy freight. And here small ears are drawn by the child whom the criticism niskolechko does not disturb. He does not pay attention to it at all.

Small eyes - the kid is timid, prefers to hide a look from others. Big, widely open eyes - the kid something frightens, he looks for protection.

Big teeth - aggression. Their kid often uses it when something not on him.

Strong hands and legs - the kid wants to grow and become strong for now it lacks this force. Long - the child dreams to achieve much already now. Short hands - absence of far-reaching aspirations.

my family

Often kids make the faultless diagnosis to the families. If the relations between parents went wrong, and those very much try not to show it to the child, he all the same will feel wrong. Perhaps, this thought will also not accept distinct outlines in its head, but will be obviously present at its drawing, it is worth asking it to represent a family.

First of all the order of the image of family members and their sizes is evident. The first he will begin to draw in detail the most important family member and, of course, will make it more than the others. Not only the father, but also the grandmother if, for example, she holds reins of government in the hand can be such “giant“. And here the kid most of all is attached to that family member whom in drawing holds by a hand. If all family holds hands, then its friendly relationship can only envy. As well as in a case when the family is busy with one common cause, but it is not divided in drawing by the partitions representing rooms.

the Alarm signal - the image someone from a family in a profile or even a back. So the kid represents the relative of whom is afraid or who to him is not nice. But if between it and the kid there was a quarrel, then his drawing in similar foreshortenings quite recently - a temporary phenomenon.

Kids are very emotional

, it is possible to offend them. And then they in general can exclude someone from family members from drawing. Often the child excludes the younger brothers and little sisters, after the birth whom parents began to pay it less attention. And the kid can reason their absence quite reasonably: the little sister or the brother walks, plays in the neighboring room, sleeps. The same fate can comprehend also the father, with only that difference that in the moment imprinted on a leaf it stays at work or in business trip. It means that the child lacks attention of the father or he is afraid of it and prefers to spend time without it.

But if the child excluded from drawing of himself, to parents it is worth reflecting strong, this one means: the child uncomfortably feels in a family as if he there superfluous.

Color thoughts

to Understand

what he is this little person, than lives also that feels, also colors which he uses in drawing will help. For example, if at drawing there are not less than 5 - 7 flowers, the child leads full life, enjoys its paints. Use of one - two flowers it is possible to forgive to the two-year-old kid, but not three - four-year-old. It means one: something oppresses the kid, and there are not enough paints not only in drawing, but also in his life.

Colour with which it paints family members tells

about much too. For example, for unloved he chooses brown or black color.

A for darlings - yellow. When children are asked what they associate mother with, they often answer: with the sun.

If in drawing prevails:

Blue - the child is quiet and balanced. It is not boring for it to one, he likes to argue. It is given to friendship entirely because prefers to give, but not to receive. However it is necessary to consider one “but“. Sometimes children choose blue not because are quiet but because they want to calm down.

Green - the child is independent, persistent, stubborn. Green for it - color of tranquility and safety for which he strives.

Red - the child is excentric, aggressive, active and easily excitable.

Yellow - the kid - the inquisitive optimist.

Violet - the child likes to dream, it is emotional, but at the same time is very sensitive and vulnerable.

Brown - the child often experiences negative emotions. It is sluggish and physically is not developed.


Black - the child is suppressed, he uses black color as a protest against discomfort which feels. Change of the atmosphere is necessary for it.

Grey - all the same that lack of color. The kid is indifferent to surrounding, he seeks not to notice what is not pleasant to it and that disturbs him.

Such simple keys to you will be necessary for

for interpretation of drawing of the little man. Drawing not only will help you to make a psychological portrait of the child, but also will strengthen his fingers, will teach coordination, the thin movements, and it will be easier for it to seize the letter later. Besides, drawing, he will notice features of world around, for example, that at a cat and at a chair four legs, and at the person - two.
