Growing up is learning to say goodbye.

Adults have already learned that death is a natural part of life (we haven’t learned anything, we wouldn’t cry for example;) but children haven’t faced what the loss of no return means. 

When children begin to realize this, it is usually at 6 years of age. Some of them even before.

David Calle and technology, or how to be an Unicoos teacher.

Remember who taught you how to write? And to read? And to add or multiply with a little song that you still sing today to remember how much is 9×6?

We all have a face to mind, a person who, with his commitment every day, managed to get us into the mollera one of the best treasures we can have: KNOWLEDGE.

Today is their day, the day of all teachers, of all TEACHERS.

The importance of pets for children

How many times have your children told you about:”Mommy/daddy can we have a dog? Can we have a cat? Could we have any pet?!

It is common for younger children to ask their parents for an animal, and if they agree, parents should make this choice responsibly, explaining their children that an animal is not a toy, but a living being that also needs care.

Having an animal in the house can bring children, and the family in generates many advantages and benefits if it is not a decision made on a whim.

Back to school: if it’s a drama for you, it’s a drama for them.

Many cry, others don’t sleep, others make excuses to stay at home and some people think they’re going to a party (for the likes of colors). The return to school leaves no one indifferent. For parents it may be a battle against the clock that only begins, but for them? What does it mean for the little ones when they go back to school?

How does children learn to be supportive?

UN proclaimed at the end of the year 2000 the 31 of August as International Day of Solidarity. On this day the UN remembers that solidarity is not a moral requirement, but also a precondition for the effectiveness of the policies of countries and peoples.

According to this idea of solidarity, in a world with great differences between the poor and the rich, true progress will be achieved through cooperation among all nations and peoples, to end not only poverty but also other inequalities. The greatest gesture of solidarity is to show a common concern and take responsibility to those who can not obtain sufficient resources for development, whose human rights and dignity are not respected.

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.
