What your kids’ favourite colour really says about them and why too much pink could be a red flag your child is needy

COLOUR influences the taste of food, shapes our mood, and can even enhance the effectiveness of placebos.

In fact, the impact of colour on our brain is well studied – and knowing the basics can give parents a window into their child’s core character, likes, and dislikes.

Colour expert, Jules Standish believes it’s therefore important to allow children the freedom to express themselves.

She explains: “We need to honour that self-expression and not project our personalities on our children.”

If your child has a favourite colour that they pick out over and over again – whether that’s for their bedroom, to paint and draw with or through their clothes – it’s likely to be an indicator of certain personality traits.

However, it’s also worth considering other influencing factors.

“We relate favourite colours to our happy times,” explains Jules.

“Colour is very emotive, so your children can have those very happy times and therefore those colours become favourites.”

There are also cultural nuances to be aware of.

For example, in certain parts of Asia, women marry wearing the colour red due to its lucky connotations.

In the western world, however, red is more commonly associated with danger and warnings.

Jules says: “A child growing up in China is going to have a very different view, probably, to a colour that we might associate with over here.”

With this in mind, this is what your kid’s favourite colour reveals about them – and when you might want to consider some neutralising influences.

What it says about your child if they favour RED:

Naturally outgoing and energetic, they will be motivated and enjoy life. Determined to achieve their goals and put lots of decisive action into play. Creative with original flair, they like to get things done with courage and drive.

Too much red can mean they do things too fast and might get impulsive and competitive, so consider adding some balancing colours into their world, particularly calming blue. 

What it says about your child if they favour PINK:

Kind, generous, and keen to please. They love to give and nurture others. May be sensitive and love to create beautiful things. If it’s the hotter pinks they love, then they will show an independent spirit and enjoy having fun.

Too much pink can encourage dependency on others, so naturally, balance this with wearing green which creates a sense of strength and harmony. 

What it says about your child if they favour ORANGE:

A warm-hearted, sociable child, full of vitality and fun. Generally upbeat and will enjoy adventures and taking a dare! Naturally outgoing, will probably have lots of friends and a big social scene.

Beware of too much orange as it’s a very stimulating colour and your child could end up in a hyperactive zone. Combine with calming blues and grounding browns. 

What it says about your child if they favour YELLOW:

Naturally sunny and likes to look on the bright side. Probably quick-thinking with a creative mind that is original and inventive. A curious child who likes to challenge others and themselves.

Too much yellow can cause a child to not sleep soundly and find it hard to relax. Add some purple into the mix which calms down yellow’s active properties and aids in good mediation, too.

What it says about your child if they favour GREEN:

A friendly child with a big heart and generosity of spirit. They like to have balance and peace in their lives and will strive for this, in all areas, particularly their relationships with friends and family. With an open and honest approach to life, they enjoy a good debate but stick to their own truth.

Green is a harmonious zone but too much can be counteracted by adding some red, to fire up energy and help to implement plans moving forward.

What it says about your child if they favour BLUE:

This child may be very independent, with quiet confidence and good communication skills. They like to feel supported in their environment and they have a caring and practical approach to life. They make loyal, trustworthy friends and people often call upon them for advice and comfort.

Over-indulging in blue might mean being too clingy at times or down in the dumps, so boost this child’s mood with a stimulating and uplifting colour like yellow.   

What it says about your child if they favour PURPLE:

Possibly shy by nature, sensitive and caring, with a wonderfully creative and innovative charisma. This child’s mind could be visionary and, always seeking to inspire, they will probably enjoy exploring new avenues of self-expression, through culture and the arts.

Balance purple with magenta or other shades of pink that are very nurturing together. Or bring some orange into play to increase social activity, if needed. 

When to choose certain colours for your child

As well as looking at what your little one’s favourite colour reveals about them, you can go a step further and actively nurture your child through colour.

Choose RED: To help get your child motivated and energised on a new project or hobby.

Choose PINK: To encourage fun with friends and family, and whenever extra nurturing is necessary.

Choose ORANGE: To help your child to feel sociable and when meeting new friends.

Choose YELLOW: For increasing play and any mentally creative activity.

Choose GREEN: To help your child work in a more productive way (a light shade is best).

Choose BLUE: For sitting exams or interviews, when anxious or stressed (particularly a shade of turquoise).

Choose PURPLE: For any form of creative pursuits like drawing, painting, etc. 

Choose NEUTRAL colours (black, grey, brown, white/cream): To offer a grounding and more conservative balance to ‘colours’ used in appropriate quantities, when needed.
