Make Easter more interesting for children by doing fun activities. We have lots of Easter craft ideas that are perfect for preschoolers. Check out the step-by-step instructions for our baby Jesus handcraft activity.
One of the biggest challenges for parents is raising and guiding their children to have values and act appropriately with society. Education in values is given at home; it cannot be delegated to the school. Although this education is reinforced at school, the family must educate with love, tolerance, and respect.
We must teach values to children. Usually, they do not think of others; they only think of themselves. Each child is a different world. Children’s personality is marked during gestation; however, their character develops, and values are learned with their experiences and surrounding environment. Children will be the ones to fight in the future for a more tolerant and respectful society.
To live in a healthy coexistence, tolerance is essential. To be tolerant is to have the ability to respect the differences that exist with other people in terms of ideas, personalities, beliefs, and conditions. Children must understand that there is nothing wrong with being different; they must grow up free of prejudices and stereotypes. Children must learn to love people as they are.
From home, stereotypes must be broken, education is done with love, respect, and tolerance, but above all, by example. Children will always find a reference and a role model in their parents or the adults they live with, so each action of adults must be consistent with what children are taught. Remember, they are always watching and learning from each action.
