How Do Infants See Colours?
Color is one of the first characteristics children recognise.
The role of color in a child's life is very important. Colours affect his mood and behaviour Some colours have a calming effect, others are exciting. Some make you smile; others scare you. Colours can tell about the character of the child, his anxieties and experiences.
Some colours have a special beneficial, sometimes even healing effect on the human body, including the child. Children love color, react to it, play, and are addicted to it.
Mankind has long noticed that color affects not only the psycho-emotional state of a person, but also his intellect.
What can we say about children who are just forming personal traits of character?
Psychologists say that even the color of clothes, not to mention the environment, can reduce or increase self-esteem, improve, or worsen a child's well-being.
What are the first colours a baby sees first?
Everyone knows that in newborns there are only two colours of perception - white and black. But when the child is about two months old, he begins to perceive other colours. Red joins white and black. After a while, the child will already be able to distinguish between yellow and all its shades.
What colours are pleasing to the baby's eye?
Children begin to learn the names of colours around the age of two to five. At 2-4 years old, the most pleasing to the child's eye are soft pink, yellowish, and blue shades. A pink elephant or a blue puppy will evoke tender affection in sensual girls. The boys in the experiment chose only light brown bears, but resolutely refused exactly the same toy in a dark brown or black colours. However, this does not mean at all that now everything dark, red or purple should be tabooed. Just consider the influence of these colours when choosing children's bedding, clothes, and items for nursery.
It is surprising that nature has a certain reaction to one or another color which has any person, child, even the smallest one. All children are sensitive to colours. Bed accessories, clothes, toys - all things and objects of certain colours can become your assistant in relationships with your son or daughter and vice versa.
Colours and psychological development?
Usually girls remember all the names of colours easier than boys. But this is not a fact. After all, the development of a child depends on the state of his nervous system. Psychologists believe that the psychological state of the baby depends on what colours surround him from birth. Most parents, with the advent of a long-awaited child, rush to the store in order to purchase all the best and most beautiful - toys, clothes, bedding items for the baby's room and bed.
When choosing a dowry for a baby, many are guided by cost or by their own taste. But the psychological state of the baby depends on what colours surround him from the first days. From the moment the child opens his eyes, the world around him becomes unusual, colourful and bright.
Everything around is very different; shape, color, size there are no identical objects on the planet. Kids understand that mom wears bright slippers, and dad loves dark ones. Grandmother is gray-haired, and mother has beautiful color and shiny hair. It is from how the child “understands” colours and shades that his first emotions and feelings are formed. When children are still small, they do not focus on what color is in front of them, they do not care. The main goal is to paint over everything that is possible and impossible.
Some colours are an eyesore to the baby
At an older age, the child gradually begins to choose the colours that he likes. How many conflicts could be avoided if the walls in the room where the child lives, from the most tender age, “cheerful children's drawings” looked at him on a white, as a rule, background. Static figures of a hare, bears and boats very quickly begin to "an eyesore" to the baby.
Only baby, unfortunately, is not yet able to figure out what annoys, and even more so to tell you about it. A favourable atmosphere in the children's room is created by pure and delicate shades of green, pink, yellowish and blue.
