Computer games for the little ones.

 

Discussion of games, toys, techniques, devoted several posts, even attached. But there is no discussion of computer games.

The son of a few months playing at the computer. Initially, the games were held my rigid censorship, then it was an omission, when it played in everything, himself, now, again, censorship is installed.

I thought, and this was confirmed by later observations, some games do more good than harm, of course, on the precondition that the computer is not a substitute for everyday leisure, festivals, games with their parents.

In my opinion, a computer game is a wonderful addition to our life (at home) when the child has the urge to act . but there is no opportunity to repeat the activity of the parent (e.g., mother sews on the sewing machine). The parent has no time clock to take the child with interesting games and tasks that call for perseverance, and interesting, for self-employment to the child of early age – very few (I almost never find them).

Prevention of addictions in children

 

It is no secret that in the life of the younger generation there is the temptation to drink or smoke. And this shouldn’t surprise – a considerable income from sales of liquor and tobacco products nowadays bear children. The reasons for such action can be many:

– the desire to “appear” in front of their peers;

– unwillingness to be the black sheep in the eyes of peers;

– imitation of their elders.

And that’s not all.

How so?

In the lives of youth nicotine and alcohol is so deeply ingrained that already to try, no need to find yourself a bad company. Moreover, these addictions may be present in the lives of perfectly normal children from affluent families. The question is: what motivates them to do this?

And after all, it would seem that all parents (even the most irresponsible) conduct lectures to the child about the dangers of Smoking and alcohol consumption. However, their children do not argue and agree with what was said. However, when in the noisy company, at a raging party night or just on the bench, they were asked to try the “more experienced” buddies, words of parents go somewhere in the background.

It remains to ask ourselves about whether were prevention of bad habits to your child. Talk more about that.

Because it is such a secret place the land of tears

Essay “”Because it is such a secret place the land of tears””

1. Childlike.

2. Planetary travel.

3. Greatest mysteries of the soul.

In his book, Antoine de Saint-Exupery reveals the magic of the naive world of the little Prince. This is not just a journey through time and space. The writer was able to look into the soul of the little man and to lift us back door.

This approach of the writer affects the fact that we know the years in which it was written that piece. In the early 1940’s, marked by military actions of Germany against France, the USSR and other countries. In the summer of 1940 the French armed forces were defeated. The only way for the French not to obey the invaders were joining the Resistance. And here Saint-Exupery it is his works stood on the side of this movement.
