Toys for Reading a Child’s Mind

  • About

    By Dr Margaret Lowenfeld

    “It is generally agreed of seven children are not able to express their thoughts and feelings in consecutive language, although those aspects of mental functioning which register feeling and thought are present in very small children. In what way then do children think, register and group their experience?” – Dr Margaret Lowenfeld

    For an hour Michael’s conversation consisted solely of “hrrow” and “frumph” except for the one occasion when he asked for more wet sand to make the hill bigger. A slenderly sturdy 12-year-old with eyes and hair almost as ashen as those of an albino, he remained so intently absorbed in his game with the sand tray as to seem unaware even of the low-voiced commentary of the student psychotherapist who never left his side.
