A study of parents' and teachers' perceptions of the concept of play
Summary:
The aim of this work is to highlight the perceptions of parents and educators of primary and pre-school education about the meaning of the game and the relationship that develops between them and children through their playful interaction. The survey involved 20 participants (10 parents, 5 teachers and 5 nurses), mainly women of various ages. Qualitative research was based on individual interviews where the thematic analysis was applied. The results that emerged were about the research questions and related to the meaning of "play" by adults and their differentiation from children (through the adult look), its importance, the positive effect on the adult-child relationship, the change that has been played in time with the presence of technology and the fast everyday life of children and adults. In the end, positive and negative changes are reported in comparison with the past and the future, with suggestions for improvement, such as spontaneity, a less loaded program than adults, more teacher training, less adult intervention, reduced pressure of matter and time at school, and more focus on the individual interests of each child.
