 What does your child's favorite color say about him?

Children's drawings – these are one-sided stories of babies about their world, imitation of others and expression of external influences. By analyzing their drawings, what colors they choose, and which ones are more likely to prevail, parents can see how the child feels, says Sharon Aaroni — director and teacher of Newton kindergartens.

If a child only draws in black, is it worth worrying? For us, black is a negative color, but many children love black because of its saturation and how it stands out against a white background.

Alternatively, the child can paint in colors that reflect their surroundings — night will be displayed in black, morning — yellow or white. Red — one of the first colors babies identify so even toddlers prefer to draw with it and of course it's one of the first colors they recognize.

What does each color mean?

Red: Dominant children will use red, which is used to express love or anger. You may notice excessive use of red in children who are prone to aggression.

Yellow: This color is associated with someone who is very sensitive, shows moderation, has patience and inner wisdom, is calm, has strong family ties and a rich inner world, and also has a good ability to concentrate.

Orange: associated with creativity, optimism, the desire to experiment and do something unusual. It may indicate a child who needs to understand the internal logic of laws in order to obey them.

Blue: This color symbolizes harmony and someone who is relaxed, calm and able to make good social connections. A child who likes blue — this is a person who will reflect inwardly, but excessive use of blue can mean alienation and distance.

Purple: Associated with imagination and intuition. Children who like the color purple have a personal inner rhythm and are idealists and dreamers who want to change the world.

Green: Children who need space, love nature and life, they are creative people.

Black: As mentioned, this is the favorite color of many children who like to see the contrast between it and the white page. Excessive use can indicate that the child is in distress.

White: The use of white or leaving a lot of white on the page can show loss or loneliness and therefore lead to social difficulties or difficulties in personal expression. The balanced use of this color, where white as a color is not noticeable, indicates social and personal harmony.

It is important to note that if children have difficulty understanding colors, as well as memory problems or language delays, a speech therapist should be consulted. If certain colors are predominant and used frequently, an emotional or developmental psychologist should be consulted.

If a child has trouble learning and remembering the names of colors, this may indicate color blindness , so you need to contact a pediatric ophthalmologist who will conduct special tests to check color vision.
