Strange baby pictures


Sometimes it happens that parents, having received a psychologist's conclusion in kindergarten, become perplexed: anxiety, aggression, rejection ... and this is all from cute children's scribbles? “All psychologists are charlatans!” - the parents decide, and do not pay attention to their conclusions.

Let's find out exactly what psychologists see in children's drawings?

At what age children can analyze pictures

Up to three years young painters are at the stage of “headaches” - they draw people- “bubbles” with protruding dashes symbolizing the arms and legs. The drawing of the parts is not yet available to them, moreover, often a “masterpiece” is born first, and only then its proud author begins to reflect on what exactly he has depicted.

Starting from 3.5-4 years the children first plan the drawing (his intention appears) and only then proceed to the execution. By the age of four, the child is already quite fluent in pencil, and the "headheads" are evolving into "cucumber people" - two ovals with limbs-chopsticks.

Five years the artist already knew enough to draw large details (arms, legs, eyes, mouth), and by the age of six, smaller details appear on the drawings: nose, fingers. Often, children paint in the manner of Picasso - the character's head in profile, but with two eyes.

Finally, by seven years drawn people are dressed, and in accordance with sex and age, they appear hats and hairstyles and even neck!

”Pictures of children from 4 to 7 years are best suited for analyzing their psychological state.

The location of the figures in the figure

The location of family members in the picture very accurately indicates their relationship. Often, children “remove” an undesirable character from their work, explaining that “the father is at work” and the sister “in the next room”. This does not mean that the relationship is completely destroyed, often brother or sister go to the figure "in another room" after a stormy quarrel.

Conversely, beloved relatives may appear in the picture, even if they live far away, as often happens with grandparents.

The child represents the closest and beloved relative next to him. If one of the characters is separated from the others, then, most likely, the child also mentally excludes him from the family circle. This may be a working dad, brother or sister who is much older in age.

The bad sign is that if the child himself turns out to be this “outcast”, this is a really alarming situation!

Image of yourself

The child himself, as a rule, depicts himself either in the center of the picture (this is a common situation for a family with an only child), or near the central figure. By portraying himself on the edge of the composition, apart from the parents, the child shows that he feels isolated from his relatives. Sometimes he gives this plot explanation, which confirms the observer’s fears: “Everyone is celebrating, and I am punished (I must sleep, read, play alone)”.

The pose of a happy and self-confident child is as open as possible: pens and legs “to the flip side”. If a child takes the trouble to draw himself with his hands pressed to his body, this symbolizes his insecurity in himself. Too short arms or lack thereof - fears of their own incompetence. Maybe you too often criticize the baby?

Usually, the child depicts the size of the figures in proportion to the real characters: the parents are bigger, the smaller ones themselves, the younger brother and the little sister are very young. The diminution of a painted self speaks of insecurity, the need for care and, perhaps, fear.

Another situation that speaks of uncertainty is the “separation” of a child from the ground, when all the characters are drawn in the right proportions, but the child hangs between the parents: his head is on the same level with the adult, and his legs do not reach the floor. Often the parents of such a small artist do not even realize that he is experiencing discomfort: after all, they communicate with him on an equal footing!

Fear and aggression in children's drawings

Psychologists are aware of signs of fear and aggression in children's drawings, which often remain invisible to parents.

Large, simply huge hands-rakes appear in that family member who is distinguished by aggressive behavior. If a child portrays himself as such, then he probably constantly has to suppress anger in himself.

Clearly traced bright pupils - a sign of anxiety of the child, as well as the hard hatching with pressure.

Finally, hypertrophied fists, teeth, sharp nails - the most vivid evidence of aggression. If a child draws himself like this, then most likely he feels a constant need for protection that the family cannot provide for him.

Sex and children's drawings

Contrary to concerns, the depiction of the genital organs in the pictures of 3-4-year-old children does not at all indicate that someone is corrupting the baby, rather about his interest in his own body and the difference between the sexes, about which he had just found out.

But if a child of 6-7 years old portrays himself with the physiological attributes of an adult: a girl with a clearly defined bust, a boy with a beard and mustache can be alerted. However, most often such drawings testify to the child’s need for attention, the desire to embellish themselves by any means. That is why children, depicting a family, pay special attention to their figure: they carefully draw clothes, accessories, and decorations (babies often draw their crowns). This picture shouts: “Hey, look at all, finally, at me! I'm a prince (princess)! ”

However, you still need to pay attention to the environment of the child. Is it possible that no one shows suspicious attention to him, was the information unsuitable for his age (for example, a porn film, a porn magazine) that could frighten him?

Children's drawing and color

The drawing of the child is usually multicolored and variegated - usually children use 5-6 colors, this is considered normal. The more confident a child feels, the brighter the colors he uses. Of course, not everything is so straightforward: a child can shade daddy with black, because dad really has a favorite sweater of this color, but if some pencil is among the favorites and one or two colors clearly dominate the picture, then you should pay attention to this factor.

Most experts rely on the interpretation of the colors of Max Luscher, a psychologist and a researcher in the field of color. He came to the conclusion that the choice of color reflects the psychological state of a person and even testifies to his physical health.

Here's how to determine the meaning of color in a children's drawing.

Navy blue - focus on internal problems, the need for peace,

green - poise, independence, perseverance, the desire for security,

red - willpower, aggression, increased activity, excitability,

yellow - positive emotions, spontaneity, curiosity, optimism,

Violet - fantasy, intuition, emotional and intellectual immaturity (children often prefer this color),

brown - sensual support of sensations, sluggishness, physical discomfort, often - negative emotions,

the black - depression, protest, destruction, urgent need for change,

if the child prefers simple pencil and does not paint the picture - indifference, detachment, desire to close.

Recommendations to parents

Experimenting with an independent analysis of children's drawings, try to have the child perform it with desire, in a relaxed atmosphere, without being distracted.

Pay attention to the following factors.

Composition pattern. Are the characters placed in the center of the picture or in the corner, is there enough space for everyone in the picture, in what order are the family members drawn?

What kind colors uses a child.

How details he pays heightened attention. How the arms, legs, faces of the characters are drawn, is the pressure of the pencil always the same?

What kind unusual items there is a picture. Is there something superfluous (for example, the sun in the room, a non-existent pet or family members), or, on the contrary, something is missing (someone from family members).

Like a child portrays herselfwhat details he pays special attention to, where he sees himself in the family hierarchy.

We hope this little experiment will help you reach an understanding with your child!

interesting article. in fact, you can really pull out a lot of interesting things from drawings. I know from my own experience that this is reliable and important information.

But I do not know why I did not ask. It seems to me (now, after 3 years) that she was simply shocked by the painted.

and the psychologist herself did not ask the child what was on the picture?))) he would have intelligibly explained everything himself)) I, if I don’t understand something, always ask my own questions and immediately everything becomes clear.
In general, the drawing is of course fire) a talented child and a close-knit family, since there are absolutely everything on the drawing and with actual details.

Once a daughter, being of preschool age, discovered the gouache, codenamed “soot gas,” which is richly black and even shiny after drying. And began a black period in her work. It’s good that there were no interpreters for her drawings, otherwise I don’t even know how I would justify myself that everything was alright with the child)))

So we have the same. If mom went shopping for a long time that day, then the children would draw themselves and dad, saying “but mom left for the store.” If, on the contrary, dad started to work at work and came only to putting children (and this is very rare), then they would draw a family without a dad “dad at work”, because mom repeated several times in the evening that dad would come later today. Well, everything is so dependent on the current situation.

The article brought me memories of how a psychologist called me to the kindergarten and with terrible eyes shows the “family” drawing of my son. The child clearly tried: painted ALL! Namely: myself, cats without tails, a dog without one leg, dad with a bag, mom with an ax, one sister with a gun, and the other with a stick and a grandmother with a brick. And plus some colored ants are crawling underfoot. The psychologist was in SHOCK.
For a long time I tried to convince her that the child simply reflected reality and did not invent anything.
- we have cats without tails - the breed is like that.
- the dog at that time was on three legs after the accident and operations
- dad's bag is his new backpack, very beautiful and comfortable
- Mom's ax is also a new and beloved one: Mom just learned to chop wood, in fact alone in the family and uses it
- a gun from one sister because she is engaged in a patriotic club, and has just taken first place in city competitions, which was discussed and celebrated in the family
- the stick of the second sister is generally a sword, which she somehow knows how to own (studied), and now she teaches the same thing about her brother.
- Grandma's brick is generally a tablet. He just has an orange case.
Here it is. something like this. No crime. But the psychologist was frightened. It seems a little more and she would have reported about us in custody.
Oh yes! At first I did not understand the colored ants myself. And then I asked the younger one. It turns out - this is his collapse Lego

It seems that no matter how the child draws, all the same, everything in the family is bad)

Yesterday I asked about the drawing of the family that she was painting - it turned out that it was the father, she and the doll she held in her hand (I thought it was me, but now it became clear why the size “I” is like daughter and why the daughter’s hand "me" rests, it's not me, she keeps the doll) She said that I went to bathe, sometimes on her drawings I go to the store.
Children know everything, notice everything, and draw a very logical picture.

An interesting article! Curiously, my younger son always draws himself above the older one (a difference of 2 years). And the older one, as he sees, is immediately angry with this. They are funny ..

My family often draws) Dad is bigger, I am smaller, the daughter is even smaller and in the middle))) Sometimes the brother also draws (I plan, talk to her on this subject).
2 months ago, a cat appeared at home while she was absent in the drawings. Never draws grandparents yet. Mostly myself, princesses, family (often here draws the sun in the sky), and cats from the cartoon "3 cats" learned to draw, everything is so colorful, beautiful, people with details - eyes, eyebrows, eyelashes, mouth, fingers, wands, girls have shoes with heels, but sometimes princesses have the pose "hands to the sides."

Psychologists everywhere will see the problem

I asked my daughter to draw our family)) now I will “solve” the drawing

Child 9 years old

Well, horror stories written. Atas most fill in the search for children's drawings.
I once worked with projective methods and children's drawing. The very first thing, ask the child what his drawing means. Who are these figures? What are they doing? Why did he choose that color? It is important to ask questions immediately after the drawing. Otherwise, associations may change. If the answers alert you, go for a consultation with a child psychologist.

Psychology of children's drawings: what the plot of drawings says

Parents should pay attention to the plot of the pictures of their baby. Most often, children depict trees, sun, sky, people, animals, houses, flowers and herbs.

A huge number of evil, horned, toothy and dangerous animals may indicate a strong internal stress of the little author.

The absence of people and animals in children's drawings signals problems in communication.

If a girl of 5-10 years often draws brides, princesses, flowers and bows - this is the norm and says that the baby is preparing to become an attractive young lady.
If a boy at the age of 5-8 years old draws dinosaurs, scorpions, battles, weapons - this is also normal. Do not worry - in this way the boy prepares himself for the role of an adult man, a defender, a warrior, so that in the event of a serious danger not to get lost and to react correctly.

Psychology of children's drawing: emotions convey color

When analyzing children's drawings, it is important to pay attention not only to the dominant colors, but also to colors whose presence is either unjustified or exaggerated. For example, when the drawing is made only with black outlines, and the baby does not want to paint it further. Or all the objects are painted in red, although in reality they are certainly not red.

Red color speaks of an internal conflict, emotional stress, irritation of the child. For example, a baby may highlight in red the one who is the source of his problems.

Blue - the color of inner peace and confidence. School or kindergarten, painted in blue - a sign of excellent adaptation to society and to the educational process.

Yellow - good mood, activity, positive attitude.

Green - conveys a sense of acceptance, reliability.

Pink - subtlety of perception, sensitivity, tenderness.

Gray - anticipation of danger, anxiety, depression.

The black - indicates a hidden depression, painful experiences.

In addition to color, you should pay attention to exactly how the child paints the picture. The complete blurring, painting or shading of a figure signals its negative emotions. The fact that the kid painted over, causes him either fear or strong anxiety. This may be the figure of a dentist, a harmful peer, a sick relative or an angry dog.

Psychology of children's drawing: details matter

Psychologists say that not only the size of the drawing itself is important, but also the size of individual parts. A small drawing with small figures and objects signals about the timidity, uncertainty, anxiety of the young author.

The location of the picture below the middle line of the sheet indicates a low self-esteem, above the middle line of the sheet, on the contrary, indicates an overestimated.

As a rule, he portrays everything that is meaningful for a baby big. And what is not very important - small. Representing his friends, the kid draws the highest not the tallest, but the one who enjoys his authority. In addition, you need to pay attention to the missing parts, if the legs are missing - this indicates a lack of stability, hands - indicate difficulties in interaction with the outside world. The greatly increased size of the ears indicates that the opinion of others is extremely important for the child, and he demonstrates that he is ready to "listen" to them. If the size of the head is greatly increased in the figure, this means that the mind of the child prevails over his feelings.


Remember that when analyzing a drawing the most important is the overall impression. What emotions does the young author express? Satisfaction, joy, happiness or loneliness, longing, fear? What is going on in your baby's soul? What is he trying to say with his drawing?

Sergey Vasilenkov for the Women's magazine "Charm"

What do unconscious drawings mean?

So what exactly are you drawing?

Those who draw animals are usually very sensitive to any living creature. The kind of animal that a person draws speaks about his mood, and, often, about the type of person he would like to possess.

Pictures of small, weak and passive animals indicate slowness, lack of self-confidence, as well as the fact that a person is more like an introvert. Images of aggressive animals speak of self-confidence, funny and cute animals are the playful character of a painter, and slow animals are an insolent, contemplative personality.

Separately, it should be said about the elephant. It is powerful and dominant, demonstrates the inner strength of a person who can overcome any obstacle. Painting an elephant is often funny and a little naughty person.

Arrows - this drive and a high degree of motivation. These people are aggressively ambitious.

Chains, as a rule, indicate that a person has a sense of restriction, especially in relationships or at work. Restrictions may apply to the beliefs of a person who do not allow him to do what he wants. If a person appears in the figure in some of the links in the chain, this indicates a very tense state.

Circles are the need to find unity and peace. They may indicate a person who is trying to collect all the details of the puzzle and understand everything.

They can also speak of a strong intuitive feeling that puzzle pieces must be formed in such a way as to form something whole. It doesn't matter if it is related to relationships or to life in general.

Circles also symbolize lighter feelings compared to corners. They are associated with sociability, talkativeness, friendliness, as well as the desire to be flexible and loving.

The value of unconscious drawings

Fluffy clouds say that the painter is happy, he is a bit dreamy, but has a strong sense of freedom. “Angry”, the clouds before the rain - this is depression or difficulties in everyday life.

Cubes indicate a person’s desire to be constructive. If they are three-dimensional, this indicates the ability or the painter’s attempt to see the problem from all sides. Drawing cubes is often a sign that a person feels trapped and powerless in the face of the situation.

In combination with circles and spirals, the cubes say that the painter would actually now prefer to be in another place, doing something more interesting.

Boxes and cubes are the most common drawings that people unconsciously draw.

It is important to add that boxes, squares and other three-dimensional objects are an indicator of masculinity. Moreover, if you draw boxes, then you most likely have a practical, organized and methodical approach to different things.

Dots talk about anxiety and instability.

They indicate the need for too long and a lot of someone to listen.

Eggs symbolize a new beginning. A new talent may appear that you did not know about. Eggs can also say that you have a need and desire to calm down and build your own stable, safe nest.

Drawings that we draw unconsciously

The eyes often speak of the inner "I" of drawing. Big eyes draw open people, and small - closed. Closed eyes indicate a refusal to look into oneself. Sad or happy eyes are a reflection of how a person feels deep inside.

Eyes are often painted by people who want to be attractive. Many drawing artists immediately assume that perhaps drawing the eyes is connected with the presence of feelings in them, as if they are being watched. In severe cases, the eyes may indicate paranoid inclinations.

The expression of a painted face is a good indicator of the mood and character of the person who painted it. A well-drawn, pretty face says that you see good in other people.

If you draw strange or ugly faces, then it speaks of your incredulity. Comic faces are the desire to be the center of attention. Children's faces are the desire to feel needed. Drawing a human profile indicates that you are an introvert.

Flowers are the feminine side of a person and the desire to see growth, nature and procreation. If the painted flowers are a harmonious bouquet, it means that the person is attached to his family and feels complete unity with her. Jung believed that if flowers appear in a dream, it is connected with the need to release emotions that a person cannot express openly.

Unconscious drawing of flowers is femininity. This is the reason why most often the girls draw them. In addition, flowers - an understanding of his personality and the expectation of flowering.

The image of food or drink says that a person is hungry for feelings and needs love.

Hearts say that at the moment a person has romantic feelings.

They reflect the attitude of a person to their family life. In houses, there must be doors and windows that indicate that a person can see what is happening outside, and his relatives can see and hear it.

A warm, hospitable house, seemingly inhabited, perhaps with a twisting chimney smoke, says that the family life is completely satisfied with the drawing, and he is happy.

Chaotic, gloomy houses talk about difficult associations in painting with home life. The house, depicted on the top of a hill, says that you are very lonely.

Also drawing houses suggests that you give a lot of value to shelter and security. What you draw on houses speaks about the things you value most. For example, the numbers and dollar signs indicate your concern for money.

Planes, cars, ships, and other vehicles can talk about your desire to travel, change something in your relationship, or change your life.

If you draw a simple house that does not have doors, windows, curtains, a chimney with smoke, you most likely are very upset at the moment of your life, feel lonely and would like to talk to someone.

On the other hand, if you painted a big house, with flowers and a garden around, you're almost certainly happy. It may also indicate that man is a materialist and loves luxury.

Some paint thin and tall houses. This indicates a critical mind. Such people do not demonstrate an open approach to various things.

Drawing your own name or initials is common for people who like to be the center of attention. Teenagers often draw only their name, without a surname, thereby demonstrating their desire to break away from the family and go about their business.

On the other hand, drawing someone else's name says two things: either this is the name of the person to whom you are experiencing romantic feelings, or this is the name of the person related to the problem you need to deal with.

Some people just draw lines. If at the same time they press hard on the handle, then aggression overcomes them, and they are afraid of something. This pressure determines your mood. The easier you draw a pen on a sheet, drawing lines, the more peace you have inside.

Drawing only the profile of a person says that the artist does not like the way he or she looks, or the person understands that he does not know how to draw well. In full drawings, but when, for example, a drawn person has no hands, it speaks of the feeling that it is impossible to do something.

Lack of legs is a feeling of lack of roots, even if they are. It is important how the person painted the face, it speaks about his emotions. Missing parts of the face speak of a person who does not feel complete, whole.

Underlining and drawing only the eye speaks about the caution and suspicion of the draw. Finishing the ears, as a rule, speaks of the need to listen to someone for too long.

Child's picture: if a drawn person soars in the air, then it means a lot to the kid. Very large ears, not adorned with earrings, may indicate a verbal insult. Sometimes the lines leading to the ears show a frequently offensive tone.

A mouth tightened with a long slit can be painted by an anxious child, and the complete absence of a mouth is the impossibility to communicate. Empty eyes speak of difficulties in perceiving the surrounding reality, they are blind to what is happening.

Large teeth of irregular shape are a tendency to aggressive behavior, especially in combination with other jagged graphic symbols, such as spiked fingers, legs, ears, hair.

Interesting fact: children draw feelings that they can not express.

Stars talk about a sense of hope, expectation of something with impatience, optimism. People who draw stars in groups are uncontrollably romantic.

She, as a rule, symbolizes the feeling that either the person himself is trapped, or wants to lure someone into a certain relationship or situation.

Drawings of any type of transport indicate a desire to get away from something or to achieve a goal. The faster the vehicle type, the higher the speed with which the person acts.

Triangles are the second most common unconscious pattern. They talk about a rational state of mind and a desire to know what will happen.

Trees represent our ego and our ambitions, so pay special attention to the health of the tree! Trees with leaves and fruits show that the painter considers love, sex and children as part of a whole.

Bare, hanging branches indicate depression and lack of morale. Barren trees may indicate that the painter does not feel his roots.
