How to Cultivate a Scientific Mind
August 27, 2014  |  Written by Carlota Nelson

Talent isn´t necessarily linked to the arts and music. A talent for science and a passion for mathematics also exist. In fact, science helps strengthen a critical mind and teaches children how to learn. Whatever interests your children have, it´s wonderful for them to learn to reason, observe, analyse and ask the necessary questions in order to make the right decisions. For those reasons alone, we should cultivate their natural instinct for science. Keep reading to learn how and what apps, books and activities will help you.

Children love the beach. However, when the sun is too high, your kids have just finished eating lunch or when the water is too cold, they might get a bit restless. Take these moments to cultivate their love for reading. You only need to learn some tricks to get them to sit still and enjoy the best books and apps for their age. Children learn by watching you. If you children see you reading at the beach, they´ll probably want to do the same. It doesn´t always work, so you´ll have to motivate them to read. But how do you do it?

Books on Wheels

Mobile libraries or bookmobiles are public libraries that offer the same services as regular libraries but instead of working out of a building, these are on wheels. This way, they can reach rural areas or small villages that either have small libraries of their own or lack one all together. In the form of a bus, these libraries offer books, multimedia, magazines and in some cases, public Internet access. You can even reserve your books by phone or email so the bookmobile brings your book of choice next time round.

Different Children. Tolerance and Respect
February 10, 2014  |  Written by Carlota Nelson

Fortunately, we live in a world with a great diversity of races, religions, customs and cultures. At school our children share class, talk, play and interact with foreign children and children of different races. Luckily, they aren´t born with prejudices. They don´t discriminate or care about nationalities, the color of skin or language because a child, no matter where they´re from, speaks the universal language of playing. The bad side is that, over time, kids acquire prejudices by what they observe around them and much like values, these are transmitted from their parents. That´s why it´s so important to help them have an open mind, be tolerant and show them by example.
