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.

Perseid Meteor Shower with children

On the night of 11 to 12 August the stars fall from the sky. The night of Perseids Meteor Shower is one of the most magic nights in which you can ask for more wishes per minute. 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.

Technology is set in the sun

Sun protection in summer is very important not only to avoid burns but to avoid complicated situations in our skin in the future. As we all know, the future is already here. It is no longer necessary that our skin is burning so that we know that a new dose of sunscreen is necessary or even find out the degree of radiation that exists at any moment is possible without waiting for our skin to start to turn red.

There is always a first time for everyone, including how to bring children to the sea, making for a thousand doubts and fears, especially if the baby’s age is only few months.

And, if the wallet allows it, you could also try to do a week in the mountains and another in the sea in order to put everyone in agreement :D

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. ”

Learning to live by travelling. The Salati Family: travelling the sea.

It has been told that when we travel, is when we really know each other, when we really look in ourselves.

Perhaps a deeper vision is the one that Miguel de Unamuno had when he affirmed that “We travel not to look for the destiny but to flee from where we leave”. This view is perhaps more similar to the concept of the family we are interviewing today, the Salati family.



Grandparents 2.0

On Twitter we could read this sentence: “If you could design the future, it would be with more libraries and less Wikipedia, with more grandparents and less social networks”

But is a world drawn with more grandparents and the same social networks so bad?
