Spare time and playing of children

Date of publication: June 15, 1980

Author: Brigitte Melzer


Systematic children research can show discrepancies regarding the children's world of spare time and play. In part, children want something quite different in their spare time from what they may do and what they really do in adaptation-to the conditions they live in. Thus one may not automatically think that the way children act is what they feel their needs are. As far as the real spare time situation as well as the actual needs of children are concerned ,it is necessary for researchers, society, and industry, with the target group of children in mind, to reorient their way of thinking.
