Phrase of the day (1)

The soft drinks great boom

Among youngsters it’s very common to hear they have soft drinks almost at any moment of the day. But, we should ask ourselves...
Is that good for their health?
Do soft drinks contain what they need to grow?
The answer is definitely NO

Kids may be used to drinking sodas at any time, even in the morning, when they’ve recently got up. As adults we should be aware of soda’s negative aspects:

  • International surveys have shown that carbonated soft drinks consumption has doubled in recent years, increasing overweight figures.
  • Drinking about 9 ounces of soft drink, may be equivalent to 130 calories.
  • Kids who consume soft drinks, have a tendency to skip any of the main meals during the day.
  • Soft drinks don’t include calcium and that’s crucial for their development.
The aspects mentioned above are some of the effects soft drinks may have on kids (and on adults as well).

Books for all ages...

What do our kids read? Sometimes, it's very difficult to choose books for all ages. Despite this, there are some books which are and will be considered books for "all ages". These books contain stories read by our parents and even our grandparents. Kids can dive into fiction worlds, which are not stained by hatred, pain or sorrow. It's still possible to read stories, with high-spirit characters, full of grace and joy.
Thus, I highly recommend the following books. They are classics, and you may have read them for sure.




Lego: Choosing quality

A Monkey Cardboard Plate Mask

What about making a monkey cardboard plate mask? You'll need the following:


  • cardboard
  • plastic plate
  • scissors
  • glue
  • non-toxic paint
  • markers

1) Paint the plate the colour you want your animal to be. It could be brown.
2) Use a marker to draw some hair all over the plate to make it look even more real.
3) Cut out the ears and different parts of the face and colour them as you wish.
4) Glue the mouth, ears and eyes to the plastic plate. 
5) Instead of drawing eyes, you can cut out them so that the child can peer through the holes.
6) Use a rope or ribbon attached to either side to hold the child's head.

And... start jumping like a monkey!!!

Why is reading so important?

Reading opens our minds to imagination and creation. When we read something, our mind immediately gets into that world, which may or not be similar to our world or the world of others. Reading fantasy stories make our mind fly, creating the characters as we incorporate the words. We may also feel part of that scenery, not wanting to miss a part of what happens.

When people read, they get to know the world in different way. They may have varied perspectives and opinions about their own realities.
So, if you are not so fond of reading, it's a good opportunity to start... you'll never regret it!

Going back to school...

Going back to school may be a hard task for parents to accomplish. However, there are some tips parents could follow to make this event less difficult.

1) Avoid using the TV before going to bed. Instead, encourage quieter games such as guessing games, or story telling.

2) Make sure you prepare kids' backpacks and clothes the night before going to school. That will prevent from arriving late, in case something unexpected comes up.

3) Tell your children stories about your childhood and school. They may feel identified with your anecdotes.

4) Ask children what they would like to have for their lunch at school. Make sure to include "that" item in their lunch bags.

5) Label chidren's objects with their names. Children are prone to lose objects during first days of school.

6) Make your own calendar. In that way, you'll not forget when school starts and finishes each day.
