Educating our children at an early age is something unique to parents. But there comes a time when you come in contact with other children at school and another of the important figures in their learning: the teacher or the teacher.
Parents, without entering dangerous territory for total control of the child, should not fall either on the opposite side of ignoring what happens at school during the hours the child is there every day. Many of the educational efforts that have been able to do with their children at home can crumble by uncontrollable situations in the case of no monitoring.
Get involved in the school life of our children is important for them to have consistent performance lines between parents at home and teachers at school and to detect any problems early.
Parents in their children’s school
We must not take our son spends hours away from home, at school, as a relaxing time for us. We must be informed of the facilities where our children are, their activities, who their partners and close friends of class and of course establish a cordial relationship with teachers or tutors.
As parents we have to give the authority that teachers deserve front of our children to learn to perceive with the same respect they have for us.
To achieve this it is necessary to get involved in our children’s school through the school means that parents have to do.
Get involved in school
We must avail ourselves every chance that the school and our time allows us to track our child’s education there. Consider that the teacher is the person who spends a lot of hours a day with our children, we can provide details many aspects of learning and child behavior to help you if you need and deal with any problems you may have.
An important point is to learn when teachers can meet with parents of students. If every week, we recommend to visit him every week, especially in the beginning, in times of change or when ARISING other problems. Do not miss more than a month to visit the guardian of your child at school.
The parents’ associations are also important means to influence aspects of the school that we want to change on the ground that are harmful to our children.
The school also appreciate parents who voluntarily become involved in helping those needs that may arise and will be an opportunity to learn more about the place are responsible for the education of our children.
Today I present a craft to do with kids: apples painted with a cardboard tube, for which we use very few elements. This recycle a cardboard tube from a paper towel (you will keep these cardboard tubes because you can serve a myriad of crafts).
You can draw different colored blocks and creating a mural with autumnal hues, from red, through orange and yellow to brown and ocher.
Cardboard tube of paper towels or toilet paper
Paintings (red, yellow, brown, green, orange …)
Cardboard or plastic tray to put the paint
Paper or cardboard to paint on them
Cut the tube into pieces (we think that we have to stay with so many points as we have colors).
Parts bend a tube to form a kind of heart (or block form)
We have painting on the dish (a little of each color) and dip the base of each tube on a different color (like a stamp and ink mojáramos).
We sealed the paper with different colors.
To make the tail of the manzama, you can use a border brown tube.
We let the paint dry and we have our mural fall over!
The Spanish Confederation of Parents (APEC) has announced that in addition to the initiative organized by the Students Union and is going to translate into a general strike for October 18, in all schools. Will you join the general strike of students and families for the quality of education?
The reasons for the general strike of families and students are protesting against changes in the Education Act that it considers is based on ideological slogans and distorted data and against the dismantling of the public school system and teachers and attacks affecting families and the quality of teaching.
Will also protest the cessation of aid to families which means that there are children starving in schools and by increasing rates and fees decreased parallel to aid families.
The week of fighting, the calendar can be viewed at the CEAPA, intended to demand the resignation or dismissal of the Minister of Education, the paralysis of the reform of the LOE and the reduction in aid to families.
We are no longer talking about a demonstration or strike teachers or university students, but the active mobilization, a general strike of families with school-age children and who feel overwhelmed by austerity measures that are, in the opinion of many Spanish declining educational quality and harming the welfare of millions of children. You do you think?
When my son was little the truth is that I did not feel safe with this service and do not use, considering that I was not enough collateral, but it was on a prestigious company.
I do not trust the safety of school bus
At that time they used was not mandatory and not wearing seat belt, which already, in itself, seemed a lot longer than me, my son always put on your seat, even if traveling by taxi.
The simple fact that the college told me that by not mandatory not hired (should be cheaper older model a bus without seat) made me think that assessed the safety of my little son.
The current regulations still require the use of seat belts in school buses, I will talk about it, because I think they are still insufficient. The only option is to pressure the school to use a service that includes and that sufficient staff to monitor children who use it correctly.
Also, when boarding the bus, the children were lined up and cared for by a single person, which I did not quiet at all. There may be impossible to control accidents and young children, who have no knowledge of the risks, but one person for so many children seemed insufficient.
Is sometimes quite difficult to monitor two or three young children, I could not believe that a teacher had superpowers to prevent someone make a prank and put in a dangerous place.
Finally, at least once in my school and I had many mothers of other centers, it happened that a young child fell asleep on the bus in the morning and appeared, at times, in the garages of the carrier . Do you happened to you or a child that you know?
That is, the caregiver had no children properly when they reached the center, with the risk. It may be human error, but I think with regards to children should be simple control measures to prevent such avoidable errors.
The rules of school bus safety
My impressions of the little school bus safety are unfounded I think once I have reviewed the current legislation on this subject. My conclusion is that it is completely insufficient and endangers children.
First and serious. Seat belts are still not mandatory. While any coach enrolled after 2006 must take incorporated but school transport vehicles should have, at most, an age of 16 years and 10 at most if not engaged prior to this activity. That is, depends on the school and parental pressure is used or not a coach with seat incorporated.
Another issue is the regulation of attention and care of children in the bus, and consciously use the word attention and care and supervision, then I think we should take that approach, like when it comes to dining.
From what I’ve found out the requirement of a caregiver is only required if more than half of children less than 12 years. While it is true that I know of no “route” without caregiver, still seems insufficient one person to monitor that many children stay safe and well tie belts.
Many accidents are abuses from tip up and down the bus, so I think it would be enough personnel so that no child left without supervision in those delicate moments.
The other standards, such as pavement skid, the security screens, speed limits (which should be higher in my opinion), the functioning of windows and doors seem acceptable, but while not increasing the number of adult caregivers both to rise and fall as within transport, while not the speed limit and make mandatory the use of restraint measures believe that school buses remain insecure.
I know there are accidents that can not be avoided and, in the case that made me me this reflection, the trampling death of a baby, do not know the details, but I still think it is necessary to improve the safety of school buses for this such accidents impossible.
To the extent that children know the world through television, what they hear from those around them or when they find themselves, are full of doubts but this does not indicate that they are able to think things from the perspective of a adult.
“Your questions are specific and do not need to receive more information than requested, so before giving an answer we must make sure in what context arises concern on that basis and speak with clarity and truth. This is not an event to formal or seek a special moment, we must choose the opposite, very natural. the end, we must question them about whether the explanation resolved his questions, “says the specialist.
A very common cause that gives rise to the fear of dealing with this wording is the lack of knowledge. The author argues that a high percentage of adults do not know the parts of the male or female reproductive organs, therefore are bound to give an acceptable explanation of any doubt and this causes mistrust when it comes to talk with children.
When in doubt it is best information if you are not prepared to respond openly tell your little one and suggest that either seek together to give you chance to know more about it. This action, far from being put at a disadvantage to him, creates a bond of trust and respect you.
Sexuality and values go hand in hand
There is a deep-rooted belief that talking about this issue openly at an early age, is to throw them a life of debauchery when they reach adolescence, however, to assume the responsibility to inform children without prejudice is implied also the experience values such as respect, patience, responsibility and the strength of self-esteem, which affects so kids can make sound and timely decisions about the way they live their sexuality.
The author also warns that by teaching them to do this with ease, you have to explain that not necessarily everyone else will see it the same or will agree with this type of treatment, “so the answer to an event in which inimical ideas, the ideal is to respect the different ways of thinking and customs of others. “
Bridgeport Superintendent Paul Vallas said he believed the boy on Monday took her stepfather’s jacket to school without knowing that the drugs were inside. “Children bring to school they find at home,” he said.
Police told the Connecticut Post that the child exhibited 50 packets of heroin when it was time for a school presentation, but Vallas said the boy only shook his heroin near his place in the class. Police did not respond to messages seeking comment Tuesday.
The boy’s stepfather, Roman Santos, 35 years old, went to school and recovered the jacket, but police had already seized the drugs, authorities said. He was arrested when he returned to school after apparently discovered that heroin had disappeared, Vallas said.
Roman authorities arrested on charges of risk of injury to a minor and other related drugs. The man appeared Tuesday in Bridgeport Superior Court and was ordered held on bail of $ 100,000. Was unavailable for comment from jail, and had listed a phone number from home.
The Child and Family Department put the little under the custody of his grandmother, despite her mother went to school to take home, Vallas said.
He praised the reaction of the teacher who discovered the drug, worth about $ 500 on the street, and others involved in the response.

To raise awareness and educate Hispanic women and their families about heart disease and risk factors, Discovery Family and his hostess Jeannette Torres, created the campaign “Listen to your heart,” which includes special programming, a micro site with valuable information on the subject and a special collaboration with The Heart Truth, a national campaign on women and heart disease.
As an ambassador of the channel and on behalf of Hispanic women, Jeannette has been invited to participate in the Red Dress fashion show, along with a large group of celebrities joined by the same cause.
See our interview with Jeannette regarding this opportunity and heart health:
Why did you decide to participate in this initiative?
I feel very proud and happy to be part of the parade of “Red Dress”. I’m participating because I want to convey the message to Hispanic women that heart disease is the # 1 cause of death among women, but also can be prevented and we can avoid them if we take action. The issue affects me very closely since my father recently suffered a heart condition and I want people to understand how important it is to talk to your doctor and keep under control the risk factors: high blood pressure, high cholesterol and overweight.
What is the Family Discovery association with The Heart Truth?
Discovery Familia is a channel that listens to its audience and features on your screen the topics that interest and that it was relevant. Our channel and The Heart Truth this time share the same goal, which is to educate women about heart disease and risk factors.
The school football team and was accepted into the theater, there are others facing a very different reality. And many children are spending their days behind bars. Unfortunately, 75 percent of children who for some reason or another have come to a juvenile detention center, will return to prison in another point in their lives.
Susan Madden Lankford journalist spent more than a year visiting the youth detention center in San Diego. What he discovered there was the need that children have a life mentor, someone to help them develop the necessary tools to grow into strong adults and confident.
The author of ‘Born, Not Raised: Voices From Juvenile Hall’, shares four keys to prevent kids are jailed and have to spend valuable years behind bars.
Most of the 2.3 million Americans in prison today have children within the juvenile justice system (500,000) or in foster care (550,000). Most of these children need to be out there. There are four essential things we can do to reduce or eliminate risky behavior that makes the children end up in juvenile detention or under the care of parents with payment. Often these children have been abused and / or neglect, and denied education or was careless with them on this issue. Often, parents of these children were treated badly because of ignorance, anger caused by immaturity, his inability to love and / or lack of safe limits.
Angry and unhappy young people engage in destructive behavior incomprehensible levels, and often end up integrated into gangs and teen pregnancy experience, things that only aggravate their problems.
In theory, the incarceration of young people intended to provide rehabilitation, not punishment. But as the United States chooses to lock these guys instinctively problem and forget about them, and because most jurisdictions lack of appropriate programs, there is an impressive 75 percent rate of recidivism within two years, by these guys .
The non-violent kids would be better learning a trade and developing a positive work ethic, doing community work, helping others, or caring for animals, and then developing reading and math skills that later make them earning diplomas in its schools.
Based on interviews with Child psychiatrists, neurobiologists, judges, probation officers and other professionals-as well as discussing my daughter and I made more than 120 boys jailed – our research yielded valuable tips on how you can end or prevent the imprisonment of young people and prevent more children have to grow in the system of ‘foster care’ or foster care.
