The frenetic pace to which we subject children today is leaving them without strategies and without alternatives to solve those moments when nothing arouses their interest or attention, when they do not know what to do. You are leaving them with no choice in a state of apathy or disinterest caused by the feeling of not knowing what to do or having nothing to have fun with.

Learning from experience is what most teaches both adults and children in this life. For this reason, parents should let children make mistakes from time to time, because it is the only way for there to be real and integrated learning. But this is not as easy as it seems, since children are born, parents love them unconditionally and as they grow they are supported to learn everything in life, starting to sit, crawl or walk.
There is something that all parents are very clear in theory but that, in practice, seems more difficult to comply with: propose good habits and routines to children and make them work. They are essential for the good physical but also emotional development of our children, hence the importance of establishing them at home in a respectful but effective way.
Children need to follow a routine to feel safe and calm in their environment. This routine establishes schedules, but also repetitive habits help to build an emotional balance that provides them with a very important mechanism for their education and for the construction of their personality.

The Doman method or also called the Philadelphia method arises from the studies and research they do on the treatment of children with brain injuries, neurologists and specialists coordinated by Dr. Glenn Doman.The basis of these studies considers that although there are dead neurons due to these injuries , there are still neurons alive and with adequate stimulation at an early age these neurons can learn to establish the necessary connections to perform the functions of those that are no longer there.
The world of children is a complex world, in which the heart, in its metaphorical sense, is structured in different parts that help it in its emotional development. Laughing, experimenting, dreaming and playing are some of those things that make your heart feel happy and in harmony.

One way to achieve this is by using the Memory Palace memorization technique. What can we do so that children do not associate studying with something boring or negative?
What motivates us to keep going? Where do we get the strength to rebuild what is broken? The answer is simple: from within. That is why it is important that, from childhood, children are taught to understand their internal personal strengths and how beneficial it can be to enhance them.
As a mother, I have often asked myself how I can awaken and enhance happiness in children, in my daughter.

We all know that, although it always helps, money does not bring happiness. So where can we find that happiness for ourselves and for our children? What do we need to be happy?

A cognitive or intellectual disability is not the same as a motor disability and, therefore, the way of working education with each of these groups of children is totally different. What is a common denomination is everything that children with disabilities learn through play: autonomy, winning and losing, rules, ability to overcome.
No face shines more than that of a child when he discovers the power of magic on Christmas night just before hearing the reindeer pass through the window of his house or on January 6 when he wakes up and sees in the living room, next to the Nativity scene portal, gift boxes; not to mention the surprise of finding a coin under their pillow put there by the tooth fairy.
A child with a disability is a person who has a physical, mental, intellectual or sensory impairment (predictably permanent) and who encounters a series of & 39; barriers & 39; that limit and prevent their full participation in society on an equal basis with other children their age.
Every day many boys and girls with some kind of disability go to class in ordinary schools to receive an education. In these centers they share a desk with colleagues without disabilities. The paths of all of them, in theory, should be even, on the other hand, they are complicated for the former, who in addition to circumventing numerous physical barriers must circumvent the obstacles that are not seen, that is, the human prejudices that slow down their passage, they slow down their wheelchairs and hinder their progress.
