Freedom of the mind

3 April, 2014

   It has often been said plaintively, that children spend too much time watching television regarding it as an element that jeopardizes or at least makes more difficult the work of educators. Surveys confirm that assertion, but it would be unfair to say that children are the culprits of this situation. In any case, they are victims of living environment, in which the television set occupies a special place not only in the family room, but, once it is on, it attracks the attention of the entire family. In this way the private sphere of the family, is invaded within the four walls of the house by a gang of “time suckers” aggressors who have not received a specific invitation to sit at our table.

Intruders or guests?

3 April, 2014

   Repeat that children spend too much time watching television sometimes plaintively, sometimes as an element that distorts the work of educators. Surveys confirm that dedication, but it would be unfair to say that children are the ulprits. In any case, infants are victims of living environment, in which the television set occupies a special place not only in the family room, but, on, focuses the attention of the entire family. The private sphere of the family, the individual, is invaded, within the four walls of the house by a gang of suspected attackers, “time suckers” who have not received a specific invitation to sit at our table.

Promoting freedom

3 April, 2014

   A common goal of educators is that children grow up in freedom and in responsibility. For this, we must promote and encourage that they make their own decisions and choose among various options. Alongside this we will help them to distinguish what is good for others and for themselves. Promoting freedom is always encouraging them to make choices for love. Read the rest of this entry »


Educating the freedom

3 April, 2014

   The mission of the educator, both father and teacher is double: make that the boy is aware of the great value of his freedom and teaches him to put it into practice correctly. This is easy to say and hard to do it, among other things because the concept of freedom and its relationship with the good and love does not understand correctly. Read the rest of this entry »


What is happiness?

3 April, 2014

   The question is not new; this comes from a long time ago and is crucial for each person. We could summarize it in this question: How do we harmonize be happy (a happy life) and do good (the good) and correct? The difficulty is that these words and expressions have lost, or better said, have been given other meanings. Happiness coincides with pleasure and what is useful. Frequently, our sight and intelligence are incapable to deepen because we are blinded by the individual, the sensitivity and the moment. Read the rest of this entry »


Together to survive

3 April, 2014

   Many people concerned about the crisis (financial, economic, political and ethical) think that their children will live in worse living conditions than they have lived until now. In a short time, we have passed from a generation where a fifty years person can choice for pre retirement to another where it is possible that when they come to the fifty might not have found a decent employment, unless they have emigrated. Not only the macroeconomic scares, but even the closest figures do: there are approximately six million unemployed people, a total of nine and a half million of pensions and only 17 million people that pay to the Social Security. We should not forget to mention the fall of the property estate: your home and my home. The forecast for the immediate future are negative, and then we will have to go back.

The choice of school

3 April, 2014

   One of the most important decisions that parents make is the choice of school for their children. In many occasions they do it for very simple reasons: the proximity of the school to the home or workplace, if it has sport facilities or dining room, the age of teachers and the absence of bad news or complaints from other parents. They would also have to consider what kind of education they prefer for their children. Read the rest of this entry »
