The benefits for children of growing up with animals and pets.

A few days ago we celebrated World Environment Day. Within all that encompasses the environment are obviously the animals.

In #TheNowFamily we have our pet, we have grown with pets and that is why we bet on the benefits that animals produce in the life of the little ones, the children. According to Dr. Eugene M. Rothe, a child psychiatrist and Professor of Psychiatry and Public Health at Herbert Wertheim School of Medicine / International University of Florida  (Miami), “Many animals, especially mammals, recognize the difference between an adult human and a boy. And, like humans, they have to take care of their little ones because they could not survive the early age without parental protection. Dogs, for example, feel emotions similar to humans, such as shame and sadness, and become depressed when they separate from their masters. That is why there is a great affinity with animals that feel similar to us. ”

Let’s reinvent New Year Resolution

With the arrival of the new year we all get caught up in the wave of New Year Resolutions, which is more risky and challenging than the rules of physics …

Long queues in the gyms, full of people who, let’s say the truth, already paid last year in full with the hope that they would go “at least 2 days a week” and in the end went a week in a whole year (some or even that). (more…)


Do you want your baby to be more intelligent? Play them music!

Music can help to our child development from mummy’s belly till the adulthood. When pregnant, futures moms are adviced to listen to classic music, this is recommended because is said it can help our baby’s development and then when he/she grows, music can be a way of her feelings to be externalized. On the other side, learning to play an instrument could be a great way to understand better the world.

5 Benefits of practicing mindfulness at home

Distraction is everywhere nowadays. Our life is getting busier and busier.. We have the possibility to access any information, anywhere in the world, to talk to anyone in any given moment. It is even harder when you have to check your WhatsApp parents groups to find out where the next party of your 5yo boy is going to take place! What a mess!

When you have to say “NO”

Oh, oh I say NO!

The time to decide what is right and what is wrong comes to all parents. To know when to say NO to children can be a difficult job for parents, especially if we are constantly pronouncing that word at home. Say what is right or not is very difficult. The right thing, costs more to guess it because nobody is born knowing everything, and even less, when all parents are every day in hundreds of difficulties raising their children. What’s wrong, seems (only seems) to be easier to know, and you just has to act in the way that best suits your child and yourself regardless perfect parents stereotypes around.

Boost your creativity, learn to play

“Creativity is intelligence having fun”


To a little girl who was 6, during a drawing lesson was asked what she was drawing. The teacher said this girl hardly ever paid attention ever, but in this drawing lesson, she did. The teacher was fascinated. She went over to her, and she said, “What are you drawing?” And the girl said, “I’m drawing a picture of God.” And the teacher said, “But nobody knows what God looks like.” And the girl said, “They will, in a minute.”

This is how Sir Ken Robinson introduces his speech during a TEDx talk, talking about creativity and why the nowadays schools are killing it.  He is one of the most important personalities when talking about creative development and innovation in human beings. He says “Kids are not frightened of being wrong. I don’t mean to say that being wrong is the same thing as being creative. What we do know is, if you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.” He continues by saying that by the time kids get adult they loose the capacity of running the risk of being wrong and they stop being creative.

Teaching children emotional intelligence: 9 habits for a greater success in life

“No one cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.” Theodore Roosevelt

We are all used to define someone “intelligent” by his/her marks when is a child or by his/her IQ when growing up. This last one became really used during the World War I when two millions of American men were sorted out by the result they realised through an IQ test. A student of this method, Gardner, moved a strong critic towards the above evaluation.

He says: “I want my children to understand the world, but not just because the world is fascinating and the human mind is curious. I want them to understand it so that they will be positioned to make it a better place”
