Empathy is the cornerstone of love. It needs to be modeled and taught to strengthen children emotionally and help them grow into compassionate teenagers and adults. Empathy is important for all interpersonal relationships. This Thursday we will talk about how parents can foster empathy at home.
La empatía es la piedra angular del amor. Es clave para que nuestros hijos desarrollen su inteligencia emocional y se conviertan en adolescentes y adultos compasivos. La empatía les ayudará en sus relaciones personales. Este jueves hablaremos de cómo los padres podemos fomentar la empatía en nuestro hogar.

Most parents use rewards and consequences as part of child rearing, especially when encouraging good behavior and dealing with misbehaviors. This Thursday we will discuss how effective these discipline tools really are.
Los premios y las consecuencias son muy utilizados por los padres a la hora de celebrar un logro o una buena conducta y para corregir a los niños cuando se portan mal. Este jueves hablaremos de si estas herramientas de educación son realmente efectivas.

Buenas, soy Pepa. ¿Has notado que tu hijo te entiende a la primera cuando lo invitas a salir por un helado o te lo quieres llevar al parque? ¿Has notado también que a menudo se hace el loquillo o que te exige explicaciones cuando tu sugerencia no es de su agrado?
Dice el refranero que "a buen entendedor pocas palabras bastan..."
Probablemente no se trata de razonar tanto sino más bien de cambiar de táctica!
Raising children is rewarding and fun, but at times it is a daunting task. Our kids are supposed to learn from us, but in my experience, they also help us grow up. They make us realize all those things that we are not good at! - Pepa
Thanksgiving dinner presents a perfect opportunity to teach children a simple lesson about gratitude, a lesson that can start with parents expressing appreciation to each other, even for the smallest things. It’s easy to take each other for granted in our busy lives and talk about our frustrations and concerns in front of our children. Parents make a lot of sacrifices and do nice things for each other on a daily basis; it is important for children to hear about it. At home, parents can model how to express gratitude just by simply saying thank you to each other. Children will learn to say thank you. Living with an attitude of gratitude will help them be happier and build healthier relationships. Thanksgiving is a perfect day to start doing just that.
For months already, the back-to-school promotion have been reminding us to stock up on school supplies. Retailers treat it like a holiday, expecting us to come celebrate. I think it is a little sad that during the entire summer we keep reminding children: “vacation will come to an end, do not forget!”
A few days ago, I was in a store watching how a mother tried to motivate her son to choose some notebooks and a new backpack for the 2nd grade. He did not seem very excited; he just nodded patiently at her suggestions. I have been in the same situation many times, in that same store. And the fact is that parents do look forward to the new school year. We are proud that our children have advanced and we are relieved to see them busy again. But for some reason, every year we try to convince ourselves that our kids should also be happy about going to school.
Parents often tell me with surprise and concern that their children do not like school, and that they become sad when it comes time to leave home in the morning, especially after a vacation. And I ask them, “What is so strange about it? Why wouldn’t they prefer to stay at home, playing in their pajamas all day?” In fact, it amazes me that most children go back to classes without much complaining - good job parents! I always advise parents to be a little more realistic about how children feel about school.
For now, please allow your kids to enjoy these last days of summer, and speak as little as possible about going back to school.
