In your childhood, when you were growing up, you spent hours every day playing “make-believe.”  And you played this pretend play, partly because you needed to…and because it was fun.  Your play was the principal instrument of your growth.  This make-believe play is universal.  It exists in cultures all over the world, and it starts at a very young age. My little girl, Caitlin…she’s two…plays make-believe every day.  She sets up dishes with teacups so that she can have parties with her stuffed animals, Buster and Wolf.  She’s busy potty-training Big Bird, which is important in her life these days too.  She has a game that she calls “Baby Lion”:  “Okay you be the Daddy Lion, I’ll be the Baby Lion…I’ll be lost, you come and find me.”  When I was a little boy, I remember at one point my mother called the pediatrician because she listened and she heard me upstairs…first speaking in my own voice, and then answering myself in another voice.  “Hello Dr. Bradshaw, do we have a problem?”  He said, “No.  Rives has a make-believe friend, that’s all.  Lots of kids have make-believe friends.” I also used to love to have adventures in row-cars.  Row-cars were actually tree stumps turned upside-down, and by pulling the roots I could have intergalactic adventures.  Now these are some of the kinds of things that I played when I was growing up.

 

童年时期,你每天都要花几小时来玩扮演游戏。你玩着这个扮演者的游戏,一部分是因为需要,还有一部分是因为这很有趣你的戏剧是你成长的主要乐器,这种扮演者游戏是普遍的,它存在于世界的每个文化中,开始于幼年时期我的小女儿,凯特琳,两岁,每天都玩扮演游戏。她用茶杯把碟子都竖起来,这样她就能和动物玩具、小娃娃和狼们一起开舞会了。她最近还忙于训练这些天很喜欢的大鸟使用便盆。她还有个自称为“小狮子”的游戏,“你是狮子爸爸,我是小狮子,我走丢了,你要来找我。”在我还是小孩子的时候,我记得妈妈还叫了儿科医师来,因为她听到我在楼上先用自己的声音说话,然后自己用另一种声音回答。“你好,布拉德肖医生,你说他这样是有什么问题吗?”他说:“没有,里夫斯有个想像出来的朋友,仅此而已,很多小孩都有这样一个朋友。”我曾经还喜欢在一排排的汽车中探险,一排排的汽车其实是一些翻过来的树桩,拉着树根我就能在星际间探险了。这些就是我小时候玩的一些游戏。
