Emotions relentlessly accompany us throughout life, from birth — do they not go. But you can't do things solely under the influence of emotions: the person must be able consciously to control them. Because in addition to the emotions inherent in the will. Together they form the emotional-volitional sphere of man. The development of emotional-volitional sphere one of the important aspects of child rearing.

A small child is not able to control their emotions   and expresses them openly, absolutely not embarrassed by others. But often parents forget that none of us are born with the already developed skills of behavior in society and instead of calmly explaining to the child that this is not the way to behave, they reprimand him, shout, punish him. But the effect of this is no: the child does not understand why he can not be screamed, but his parents can.

Parents must understand the baby cries and fights and capricious, not because it's bad, but because they do not understand that you can't do that. The development of emotional-volitional sphere — the gradual process, and instead to punish the child, you need to teach him how to Express negative feelings in an appropriate way. regulate their emotional state, relieve emotional tension. And it is best to do this with the help of the game, because the game is not only a fun pastime, but also a powerful educational tool.

Play on the development of emotional-volitional sphere of the child

Play on the development of emotional-volitional sphere will help the child learn to throw out negative emotions, help to relieve muscular and emotional tension. Note that for all of these games (especially those involving two or more children) requires the participation of adult   - he will monitor the emotional state of children. All games are designed for children from four years old.

Stubborn sheep

For this game you need two or more participants. Children are broken up into pairs. The leader (adult) says: "Early in the morning two sheep met on the bridge." The children spread their legs wide, lean forward and rest against their foreheads and palms. The player's task is to stand still, while making the opponent move. At the same time you can bleat like lambs.

This game allows you to direct the energy of the child in the right direction, throw out the aggression and relieve the muscle and emotional tension. But the leader must make sure that the "lambs" do not overdo it and do not hurt each other.

This game was developed by the teacher LI Petrova. It will help to throw out aggression and relieve muscle and emotional tension. In addition, it allows children to be liberated and develops a sense of humor. In addition, it is more secure than the previous game. To play it is very simple: the presenter tells the poem and accompanies his movements, the task of the children is to repeat them.

Today I got up early
I didn't sleep, tired!
Mom in the bath invites,
To wash makes!
I have pouted lips,
And in the eyes shines a tear.
The whole day now I listen to:
— Do not take it, put it down!
Feet I heard footsteps, I handed batters.
  I do not want, I do not want to!
Then out of the bedroom dad gone:
— Why such a scandal?
Why, darling child,
Nehochuha you've become?
Legs and I heard footsteps, I handed batters.
  I do not want, I do not want to!
The Pope listened and was silent,
And then he said:
— Will be together to patter,
And pounding and screaming.
With my dad we beat, and beat.
  So tired! They stopped.

Again reached
Showed hands
Lowered his head, pouted
Wipe the "tears"
Stomp foot
He shook his finger
Stomp their feet, beat with hands on knees
Stomp their feet, beat with hands on knees
Go slow, wide steps
Surprised throw up your hands
Turning to the other children
Again, throw up your hands
Stomp their feet, beat with hands on knees
Stomp their feet, beat with hands on knees

Stomp their feet, beat with hands on knees
  Noisily exhaled, stopped

If the game goes into jeers and pampering - you need to stop it. It is important to explain to the children that this was a game - we were fooled, but now it's time to become ordinary children again and do other things.

The flower and the sun

This game, unlike the previous ones, is aimed at relaxing and stabilizing the emotional state. The children squat down and clasp their knees. The host begins to tell the story of the flower and the sun, and the children perform expressive movements that illustrate the story. As a background you can include quiet soft music.

Deep in the earth, there was a seed. One day a warm sunbeam fell on the ground and warmed it.

The children are squatting, head down and hugging their knees.

A little sprout came from the seed. He slowly grew and straightened up under the gentle rays of the sun. The first green leaf peeped through it. Gradually, he straightened and stretched to the sun.

The children gradually straighten and stand up, lifting their heads and hands.

Following the leaf on the sprout appeared bud and one day blossomed into a beautiful flower.

The children straightened to his full height, slightly throw my head back and spreads his arms to the side.

The flower basked on the warm spring sun, exposing each of its petals to its rays and turning its head after the sun.

Children slowly turn after the sun, half-closed eyes, smiling and rejoicing the sun.
