As there is no scientific theory to prove it.
What skills does the child acquire by coloring the coloring pages?
Coloring the popular comics series like Avengers coloring books helps the baby express their feelings, and helps the mother understand the baby’s mood by the colors that the baby is currently painting. For example, bright shades of yellow, orange, red – a manifestation of joy, happiness, on the contrary, Shades of gray, brown – it is sadness, resentment, anger. Among other things, a child coloring animals coloring , is acquainted with the animal world, learns something new.
It is especially important to understand the mood of the child until he speaks and can express his emotions only through crying, for such crumbs, coloring with mom coloring has a therapeutic effect, the child expresses emotions and relieves psychological stress. Mom, noticing negative emotions, can adjust the daily routine of the crumbs, introducing elements of joy, happiness. The coloring technique itself tells parents a lot about the psycho-emotional state of the child, so if the child paints the coloring slowly, smoothly, smiling, be calm, and if the crumb movements during the coloring are quick, impetuous, cutting, note that something worries the baby.
Modern coloring depicts not just an object but tries to show action, movement, emotion, forcing the baby to analyze where he met with much in life. Moreover, you can focus attention on this and together with the baby try to remember all the situations when he saw a smile or when he was upset, then through coloring, he will be able to relive various feelings with the cartoon hero and learn how to react correctly to life situations.

The fifth argument in the positive effect of colorings on child development is the acquisition of skill self-control. Almost every parent was faced with tantrums of a child 2-3 years old. Often tantrums are associated with the fact that the child does not succeed and he begins to freak out. Self-control in a child begins to form by the age of 4, and it is very important to contribute to the development of this skill if you do not want to be in a situation where your favorite child is sitting on the asphalt and yelling, demanding that you obey his whims.
Coloring can slow down the development of a child after 5 years, when he already has a clear idea of the shape of the object, its color, that this or that facial expression expresses certain feelings. Here, parents should move away from the coloring and let the baby show their imagination and reveal their manifestation of the inner world.
