Playing is very important to children because it helps with their growth development.

Das Spielen ist den Kindern sehr wichtig, weil es ihrer Wachsenenwicklung hilft.

Is Wachsenentwicklung the right word in this context?


You can use 'Wachstumsentwicklung' instead.

No. Waschentwicklung is not even a word (it literally means "washing development"). You probably mean Wa**chs**entwicklung, but that's not very idiomatic, either. I'd suggest "weil es ihr Wachstum fördert."

  • Or just "Entwicklung" if the context clearly points to children growing up. – Mark Apr 22 '14 at 5:11
  • It depends, I think. "Entwicklung" simply means development, not growth development specifically. But yes, the term as such is certainly used. – Ingmar Apr 22 '14 at 5:14
  • You're right. Hence the note about the context. – Mark Apr 22 '14 at 6:39
