disappointment in children

When we are little, we want to try new things, explore and do new activities every day. We see people who succeed, either writing or making the best slime they have seen; but sometimes we encounter obstacles that prevent us from achieving the goals as we wanted or that prevent us from meeting our expectations. As we grow we realize that we are not always going to succeed on the first attempt, that achieving a goal requires perseverance and multiple attempts, but when we are little we hit a wall that prevents us from completing what we want, and when we find ourselves The first disappointment, it will not be so easy to keep trying because we will be forced to think what happens if I fail again?, it is the moment when we present them with a question, this one that we must present to our children every time they have fear of trying something new: What is worse: trying and failing, but finding a way to succeed or give up and not knowing what we would feel when we achieve our goal and objective.

Explain racism and discrimination to our children.

Following the murder on May 25 of George Floyd by a policeman in the State of Minnesota, in the United States, millions of people around the world (but especially in the United States) have demonstrated against racism and xenophobia. This act unleashed multiple events by the authorities where they have abused power to violence people of color. At 123pormi ls we want to remember that acts of discrimination against another human being should not be tolerated and should be spoken, as a result of this the #BlackLivesMatter movement was born, which aroused encouragement and support on the part of some people, as well as denial on the part of from others who said that not only lives of color matter, but they all matter. This is a time to tell our children, teach them that tolerance is love and that despite all lives matter, at this time some need us more than others because they live in a world where their skin color defines their safety in your day to day. Remember that to remain silent on the subject is to be complicit. So today we will tell you some things what we can do with our children to talk about discrimination and especially racism.

When we are little, the world around us presents news every day, be it from new words, colors or sounds. This is why the concentration and attention of children is so easily diverted, this is something that we must train so that our children do not see their attention impaired in the future.

Montessori activities

I remember as if it was yesterday when I was little, one of my biggest dreams was to grow up, to be an adult and to create my own rules. Even towards everything so that everyone would tell me that I was 50 or older, we can say that this is the beauty of being a child, we do not know the true responsibility and we want something that we do not know at all. We were used to seeing our parents tell us what to do and what not to do that we wanted to make our rules and do everything an adult did. By the time we became adults, panic fills us up, believe me, I wasn’t even ready. That is why in this new era of parenthood a great trend has been to apply the Montessori method in the daily life of our children since it teaches not only from: memory, motor skills and language but it also teaches patience and responsibility.

The child is developed through free work with teaching materials in order to develop the child’s potential in a structured environment. The Montessori environment promotes the child’s independence in exploration and the learning process, freedom and self-discipline make it possible for each child to find activities that respond to their evolutionary needs. This is possible since the children are the ones who decide what activity they want to do in a designated space with rotation of themes and activities. Sigue leyendo “The Montessori method”
