Why does my daughter draw people without arms?
Q: Why does my 7-year-old daughter draw people without arms? She does it about 98 percent of the time. What does that mean?
A:There is no need to get alarmed by this unless you notice any other problem in your child. Drawing a human being is not easy in any case and not everyone is good at drawing. Try to talk to her and ask her why she does not want to draw arms. Show her how the drawing can look better with arms. If you are still bothered, consult the school counsellor or psychologist.
