The importance of learning

Something that we must teach our children is the value of learning, that is why it is vital to teach them to love school, to enjoy the learning path, not to forget that learning something new is fun and magical, having knowledge of multiple cultures, languages, important people or moments that we have spent in history. Learning allows us to develop, evolve, fill ourselves with valuable information that is somehow kept in our head as knowledge. I comment personally, both my father and my mother when I was little taught me to live around learning, this gave me the opportunity to express myself like no other, many people refer to me as an information jukebox, because when learning and by constantly preparing and exercising my brain, my memory developed in an incredible way. We must remember that the brain is another muscle that needs to be constantly exercised and remember that there are multiple ways to do this to make it constantly fun.

¿Que te hace reir?

Muchos podemos coincidir que reír es muy agradable, escuchar a las demás personas reír nos causa alegría y nos llena en el interior, una de las risas mas lindas es escuchar bebes y niños reír, esas risas chiquitas y constantes que nacen solo de ver un animalito o de un gran abrazo de oso. Las risas tienen el poder que muchas personas no se imaginan, esa fuerza y energía que brinda una risotada es insuperable. La risa juega un papel muy importante en los niños y bebes porque al igual que el juego, las risas desencadenan toda una serie de reacciones fisiológicas, cognitivas y emocionales que facilitan el aprendizaje, la sociabilidad, la liberación del estrés acumulado y permiten que el niño sea más abierto y espontáneo.

¿Eres feliz?

Algo que nos han preguntado por lo menos una vez en la vida es: ¿Eres feliz?, ¿A que crees que viniste a esta vida? ¿Cuál es el sentido de tu vida? Les cuento que estas preguntas no siempre tienen una solución clara, llegará el momento en el que nos pregunten esto y no tendremos una pregunta directa, no vamos a saber que responder. Esto es completamente normal, es normal no tener ni idea, es normal decir que no o no se. No siempre tenemos que estar felices, no tenemos que saber a que vinimos a esta vida y no tenemos que saber cual es el sentido de nuestra vida. Con esto no me refiero a que debamos estar perdidos, a que no debemos saber que queremos y a que no debemos ser felices, pero no siempre lo estaremos y llegará el momento en el que descubramos la respuesta a la mitad de estas preguntas. Después de todo la felicidad es esa emoción que nos llena y nos reconforta mas que nunca, pero a veces hay que caminar un poco más para encontrar una felicidad constante.

¿Are you happy?

Something that we have been asked at least once in our life is: Are you happy? What do you think you came to this life for? What is the meaning of your life? I tell you that these questions do not always have a clear solution, the time will come when they ask us this and we will not have a direct question, we will not know what to answer. This is completely normal, it is normal to have no idea, it is normal to say no or I don’t know. We do not always have to be happy, we do not have to know what we came to this life for and we do not have to know what the meaning of our life is. By this I do not mean that we should be lost, that we should not know what we want and that we should not be happy, but we will not always be and the time will come when we discover the answer to half of these questions. After all, happiness is that emotion that fills us and comforts us more than ever, but sometimes you have to walk a little more to find constant happiness.

Si pudieras decidir ¿Que harías en tu día ideal?

Pensemos por un momento que hubiéramos hecho cuando éramos pequeño si nos dan el poder de decidir qué hacer en todo un día. ¿Cual seria nuestra reacción? ¿Qué seria lo primero que pediríamos? Como adultos y padres sabemos que una buena educación implica ayudar a los niños a ser autónomos, a tener criterios propios, a pensar por sí mismos y a tomar decisiones, porque si desde pequeños aprenden a tomar sus propias decisiones y son capaces de aceptar sus consecuencias, se convertirán en adultos independientes capaces de tomar decisiones acertadas. Pero por lo general cuando éramos pequeños no teníamos gran poder, si mucho podíamos decidir que sabor de helado queríamos cuando salíamos con nuestros padres. Por lo general no llegamos a pensar en cosas o situaciones que no nos parezcan realistas, la probabilidad de que le permitamos a nuestros hijos hacer y deshacer por un día es casi nula. Pero es curioso pensar que harían nuestros hijos en esta situación, inclusive es importante volver a nuestra mentalidad de niños y pensar nosotros que hubiéramos pedido.

¿What would you do in your ideal day?

Let’s think for a moment what we would have done when we were little if we were given the power to decide what to do in an entire day. What would our reaction be? What would be the first thing we would ask for? As adults and parents we know that a good education implies helping children to be autonomous, to have their own criteria, to think for themselves and to make decisions, because if from a young age they learn to make their own decisions and are capable of accepting their consequences, they will become independent adults capable of making wise decisions. But usually when we were little we didn’t have great power, if much we could decide what flavor of ice cream we wanted when we went out with our parents. Usually we do not get to think about things or situations that do not seem realistic to us, the probability that we will allow our children to do and undo for a day is almost nil. But it is curious to think what our children would do in this situation, it is even important to return to our mentality as children and to think that we would have asked.

Justice in children

What is fair depends on the ethical and moral paradigm in which a certain society lives, therefore it will vary according to the country, the population, the group, and the person. Everything in this life depends on multiple variables, sometimes it depends on us and sometimes not. But, as well as the cold or heat, the good and the bad; justice does not exist without an opposite, we could not distinguish just acts if there were no injustice. But beyond all that, life has no obligation to be fair, or to comply with the parameters of what we consider fair. Pretending that just for acting in the right way life is going to reward you with what you think you deserve, is an act of faith that will also end up frustrating you when you don’t receive what you expected. We must teach our children to distinguish between something fair and unfair according to the culture or society in which we live.

Two magic words

We have always been taught that good manners include asking “How are you?” Sometimes we forget the power that these words have, asking how did you do today? How was your day ?; we are full of thoughts, things to do and worries that we do not remember the little details that can help a person. Whether from our children, friends, family or just an acquaintance; These words can be the source of someone remembering a good day, the source to vent and release something that has bothered them all day, they are a source of catharsis, so I am going to comment on the importance of asking how was it today ?
