Playing games teaches us about life.
Although, some might believe, that playing games does not have anything in common with the real life. However, I think we have learned a lot about dealing with situations in our lives from the games in our earlier childhood, particularly, when we played with others. Therefore, I think that playing can teach us valuable lessons for our life.
Born as a helpless creature, we are very dependent on our parents in the first weeks and months of our life. After a while, we start to realize our surrounding environment and gathering information. After a few additional months, infants try to contact the others. The first efforts are, trying to make noises or sounds. This is the earlier form of playing. The babies play with the simplest tool they possess. Playing with sounds gives them the possibility to create contacts and learn the way to speak properly, the language.
The other forms of playing occur in the earlier stage of childhood as well, the visual playing. To recognize the forms and colours, infants try to touch and feel them. Later, they can distinguish the different features by sorting them in order of their colour, form and size. I am sure; every one has already seen babies, who play for hours with the small coloured figures, hanging over their baby crib.
These facts show, that we start learning by playing in our very beginning stage of our life. Later, when we can communicate with other children. Playing will become more important, because we start to learn the appropriate social behaviour. We play to be a father, a mother, a soldier or a doctor. We learn how to shear and how to respect each other.
As we discussed, playing is a very important feature in our learn process, beginning in the infancy. Even as adult, we continue to play and learn, the role of playing is may be less important, but it remains a strong tool for communication and interaction with our social environment. Therefore, I agree with the statement, that playing games is a crucial part of our education.
