Photography for children. Improving their creativity. World Photography Day

Thanks to advances in technology, the world of photography is now even closer to everyone’s reach.

Digital photography has made it easier to have simple equipment that we can all handle, and this includes children.

But how do you introduce children to the world of photography? Today, mobile phones (smartphones) bring cameras with some qualities, which not even the SLR cameras of 5 years ago brought. That is why photography is available to everyone, adults and children, with many possibilities. But first, perhaps it is better to start by knowing what photography is.

The tears of Saint Lawrence (as it is called in Europeans countries as Spain) fall to an average of 150 meteors per hour, so  you have more possibilities to ask for wishes than on any night of the year.

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. ”

Antibiotics yes or not? Natural antibiotics, the other option

We are in that time of the year when we end up being “friends” of handkerchiefs, snores, cries of pain and discomforts and we have to have a medicine cabinet that neither the navy can compete with.

Getting a cold is always annoying, most of all if it requires us, the elder, to stay at home and have to REST! Seeing our child suffering is even more annoying if not hear-breaking.

In moments of despair, when pediatrician does not prescribe us anything more than painkillers, we ask ourselves the same question: when will he prescribe us antibiotics?
