Good manners

Good manners are an important thing to have as they show that you are courteous towards others. Good social etiquette can help you develop better relationships and make it more enjoyable to be in your presence. In case you are eating with other people, be careful to use good manners when eating to show that you are respectful. You should also maintain etiquette when you are online so that you do not offend or share too much information with others.

Having good manners is not just sitting well at the table, or eating politely. It also consists of being considerate of other people, treating them with respect, appreciating good gestures,… and all this is disappearing in an alarming way.
This lack of good manners and courtesy, although it may not seem like it, causes us more stress than we can already suffer from day to day. And it does not allow us to relate to the rest of the world, with the harmony that would be recommended. In short, it causes quite a significant social unrest. As if all this were not enough; Some studies have shown that a lack of courtesy with a colleague, for example at work, reduces the productivity of that employee for a long time.
Regardless of how others act, keep your own good manners. Let the behavior of others not determine yours. Say good morning or reply to whoever gives them, apologize if you think it’s necessary, ask for things please, etc. They do not involve a great effort and you will feel better with yourself and with the world.

If you treat others with respect and politeness, they are more likely to do the same to you. You will be a more attractive person. I am not referring to a physical attractiveness, I mean that we all find it more pleasant to relate to a person who is educated, than with another who is not. You will make others feel good. When you treat people with the respect they deserve, not only will you make yourself feel good, but you will make the people you associate with feel good too.
In general, if we all used the good manners that we undoubtedly know, we could interact more easily and with more well-being for all. And, it costs nothing. A “please”, a “thank you”, or an “apology”, accompanied by a smile, does not involve any effort for you, and you make the moment more pleasant for the other person.

Respect towards others

Respect is a fundamental value that makes us have consideration, appreciation and recognition towards someone or even something, taking into account their interests, limitations, fears, condition and feelings.
Knowing how to respect others is essential, as it represents valuing and tolerating differences and understanding that they make us grow. We understand by respect the act by which a person has consideration for another and acts taking into account their interests, abilities, preferences, fears or feelings. Respect is one of the most important and primary actions that human beings can have among themselves because it always means valuing what makes the other different from one another and tolerating those differences in order to live better in community. Respect can be applied to different groups in society and vary in terms of their characteristics depending on it: respect for children and childhood supposes their protection, respect for freedom of expression supposes their defense, respect for the elderly assumes your constant attention

Dependency on children

A very common consultation in psychology clinics is related to dependency problems in children. This occurs in parents who, in one way or another, believe that their children have less autonomy than they should. Emotional dependence consists of the excessive need of a minor to be with their parents to feel comfortable, comfortable, safe and protected. The process of maturation and development of children consists precisely in becoming independent and self-sufficient. Thus, they go from an absolute dependence at birth, to an autonomous life in adulthood. In the early stages of life, the minor requires her parents for everything; little by little, gradually, this dependence is reduced, until finally becoming self-sufficient.

La dependencia emocional

Una consulta muy habitual en las clínicas de psicología es la referente a los problemas de dependencia en niños. Esta se da en padres que, de un modo u otro, creen que sus hijos tienen menor autonomía de la que les corresponde. La dependencia emocional consiste en la necesidad excesiva de un menor de estar junto a sus padres para sentirse a gusto, cómodo, seguro y protegido. El proceso de maduración y desarrollo de los niños consiste precisamente en llegar a ser independientes y autosuficientes. Así, pasan de una absoluta dependencia al nacer, a una vida autónoma en la etapa adulta. En las primeras etapas de la vida, el menor requiere de sus padres para todo; poco a poco, de manera gradual, esta dependencia se va viendo reducida, hasta llegar finalmente a ser autosuficientes.

Teaching generosity to our kids

One of the learnings that children have the most difficulty doing is learning to share. They do not understand the meaning of another person touching their things, playing with their toys, or receiving attention from their mother. They have an exaggerated sense of ownership, in short, they go through a stage of self-centeredness and assume that they are the center of their world. This is even more reflected when children are only children, since attention is constantly directed towards them. But it is normal for all children to have a sense of belonging to their things and that is why we must promote the idea of ​​generosity from a young age.

Enseñar la generosidad a los niños

Uno de los aprendizajes qué más les cuesta hacer a los niños es aprender a compartir. Ellos no entienden el sentido de que otra persona toque sus cosas, juegue con sus juguetes o reciba atención de su madre. Tienen un sentido de la propiedad exagerado, en definitiva, pasan por una etapa de egocentrismo y asumen que son el centro de su mundo. Esto se refleja aun mas cuando los niños son hijos únicos, ya que la atención se dirige constantemente hacia ellos. Pero es normal en todos los niños que tienen un sentido de pertenencia hacia sus cosas y es por esto que debemos fomentar la idea de la generosidad desde pequeños.

It is important to awaken children’s curiosity for science and, above all, for astronomy.
