We recently published an article on how our kids enjoy pretending they are us. Surely you’ve caught your daughter with your lipstick or your son trying to wear his daddy´s tie or walking around the house with your heels on. “Playing dress up is one of kids´ favourite pastimes because it responds to their need to search for their own identity and with how they are influenced by different genders. This type of role play is copied from watching you get dressed up or looking at how dad shaves or how anyone in their close environment engages in these daily rituals.” Today, we´d like to show you how to teach them to imitate us at the Spa because health and wellness are also important for the little ones.

Do you know what we´re doing today? We´re going to spend the day at the Crazy Crazy Building by Barriguitas! It´s 70 cm high and has four stories full of incredibly funny neighbours. That´s what the owner of this very peculiar apartment told us. Along with her baby and her dog, we went on a tour with her. But before we rang each bell, she said that the Crazy Crazy Building can actually be hung in a bedroom and have it become part of the décor. Now that is a truly amazing doll house, don´t you think?

This month´s Wishmakers are Belén Robles, María García-Parrado and Raquel Burguillo, the three psychologists that founded Afectiva, A School of Emotional and Social Development.  After years of training and experience working with children, teenagers and families, they decided to share their vision of psychology and create this project. Their work method is based on close ties and trust as they want the people who come to the school to feel welcomed and offer them a place where they can express themselves freely. We asked them how parents could develop their children´s emotional intelligence as well as how to best manage emotions, cultivate empathy and avoid bullying.

Universal Children´s Day was first established in 1954 by the United Nations on a day like today, November 20th, in order to promote unity and international awareness of children´s rights. UNICEF coordinates this special day and encourages us to participate in improving the welfare of children all over the world. There are still too many who  do not enjoy their full rights and there is still a lot to do. We, as parents, should help our children become aware.
