Zapp´s Family: 17 years journey. 4 children. Love hasn´t a specific place.

“The World will always be there for you. But you will not always be in the world. Time passes and there is nothing that can be done. The only thing is not to let your life go as well. “

Anyone who has fallen in love at least twice in their lives knows that every story is likely to be different and unique, but today we have changed our way of approaching a partner. But love is a complex force and as such, sometimes it offers film scripts.

This is exactly the case with Herman and Candelaria Zapp who in 2000 decided that their life would be like a movie … a film in which the journey would have been the protagonist. An on-the-road trip aboard a 1928 Graham-Paige.

“There is no better company than those who make you love life, and those are our autistic children” (Eva Luna)

“I am Capable” was the motto that last year served us to start talking about #TheNowFamily about Autism.

The next day April 2 is celebrated World Autism Day and, since this year we have a little more knowledge, we wanted to have the advice and experience of those who know more, mothers and fathers. In this case, a mother, a fighter as few as I dare say, Eva Luna.

Women Entrepreneurs’ Day

It is interesting to see how the evolution of our humanity gave birth to a new category of workers, Female entrepreneurs, also known as women entrepreneurs.

Taking a step backward, and looking at what means being an entrepreneurs, we can see that those who choose this road are not afraid of risks and are ready to enrich the world with their innovative ideas. This should not differentiate between being a female entrepreneur or a male one, but in our society this plays a fundamental role when coming to managing. Even if we, women, fight for our rights and want to be at the same level as our companions, we still have to give birth of a human being, which is not the easier and simplest thing to do.

I have Down Syndrome, what´s the problem?

This was the phrase with which last year in the world down syndrome day the Spanish actor Pablo Pineda, was stated in the newspaper El Mundo. And we ask ourselves today, of course, and why not? This actor from Malaga, not only expressed in this natural way but also, with his words showed a maturity and a personal pride, that many of us already wanted.

What is Montessori Method and how to apply it.

Today, in #TheNowFamily we are interested in the educational method everybody is talking about. We have heard a lot but… ¿What is Montessori? Where does it came from? What is about?

To get to know it better we should talk about its founder, the doctor María Montessori, who was born in Italy in 1870. She graduated at University of Rome, being the first women to become a doctor in Italy.

She was an entrepreneur in so many ways. She created the first “Casa dei bambini” in 1907 which was famous for revolutionize the whole educational environment because she didn’t focus on an specific theoretical method, on the contrary, she had the kids as the important point within the education.
