Information hygiene, a successful event

Information hygiene, a successful event

On Saturday, January 15, the seminar "Information Hygiene" was held, at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Bucharest, during which the importance of selecting beneficial and toxic information and the mechanisms underlying the processing of information were discussed.

The international expert in education of excellence, Professor Doctor Florian Colceag and the president of the Infospeed Association, Alexandru Bordea spoke in front of a large audience of over 200 people and addressed topics such as brain mechanisms for information selection, recommendations for a healthy brain or dissociation of toxic information of the benefit of the individual.

The public had the opportunity to find out about the parental control program ControlInternet.ro and the context in which it is launched, that of the explosion of risks in the online environment. Thus, the mechanisms acquired for the selection of information have been joined by a concrete solution, which offers the necessary tools so that children have exclusive access to beneficial and educational content.

Also, ControlInternet.ro representatives set up a dedicated stand, where they disseminated information and promotional materials to interested parents and teachers.

Top 5 parenting fears and what you can do about them

Top 5 parenting fears and what you can do about them

We polled more than 2,400 our site parents to find out what keeps them up at night. Your fears ranged from concerns about your kids' future to their personal safety to their long-term health — and back again.

This made us wonder: Are our kids really at risk, or is worry simply woven into our parental DNA?

In general, parents and nonparents alike tend to fear the things they can't control. Parents also tend to be particularly afraid of lurid and sensational hazards, those that draw media attention and make for movie-of-the-week melodramas.

Alfred Sacchetti, an emergency room doctor in Camden, New Jersey, and spokesman for the American College of Emergency Physicians, says it's common for parents to worry more about their child being abducted by a stranger than about his riding in a car without a seat belt or playing near an ungated swimming pool — even though car- and water-related accidents pose a far greater threat to kids than abduction.

"Unfortunately, a lot of what we're exposed to on TV is designed to generate ratings rather than educate parents," says Sacchetti. "Our access to information doesn't keep up with our access to entertainment."

We consulted Sacchetti and a host of other experts to find out how your fears stack up against the facts and what you can do to keep your child safe.

1. Great expectations

The Fear: I'm afraid my child won't get the education and opportunities she needs to reach her potential.

This was the top fear of the parents in our survey. This surprised us, given that we polled the parents of relatively young children. It didn't surprise author Pamela Paul, however, who has spent the past few years examining the mammoth baby-products marketing machine for her book Parenting Inc.

In the book, Paul shows how parental anxiety fuels this lucrative industry. Marketers feed the fear, claiming "educational" toys and products and early reading programs will put your child on the fast track to success — before he's even out of diapers.

Paul believes this parental anxiety is a rational reaction to a scary economic climate. "Underlying a lot of parents' fears is a broad sense of economic insecurity," she says. "Parents are afraid that their children won't have an easy go of it because they aren't having an easy go of it. Many parents today are struggling to make ends meet, and they want a different kind of future for their kids."

The Reality: There's no question that we're living in a time of economic uncertainty: Unemployment and the cost of living are both on the rise, while wages are stagnant and increasing numbers of jobs are going overseas. It makes sense that parents are concerned about their children and how they'll fare in an increasingly competitive world. But this doesn't mean that you should panic and begin grooming your child for the Ivy League the day you bring him home from the hospital.

What You Can Do: Paul and other experts agree that it's not necessary to buy every educational toy that hits the market or fill each hour of your child's day with enrichment activities. When it comes to helping your child reach her potential, it turns out that less is often more.

"There is evidence that the best thing you can do for your child is to buy fewer things," says Paul. "The average American child gets 70 new toys a year. But it turns out that kids who are more creative actually have fewer toys. Having a small number of simple, basic toys helps children develop their imagination and resourcefulness."

Psychologist Paul Donahue, author of the book Parenting Without Fear, offers a similar perspective. "Parents think they should do it all for their kids: stimulate them, keep them constantly entertained, do everything for them so they won't have to endure any frustration. They worry that if they don't do these things, their child will somehow fall behind."

Donahue argues that the reverse is actually true: Constant parental hovering makes it difficult for kids to develop independence, resourcefulness, imagination, and basic life skills — all things that will help a child achieve in school and in life.

Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner explore this issue in their book, Freakonomics, concluding that many of the things parents do to ensure their children's success, from moving to a better neighborhood to exposing them to classical music, have little impact.

2. Stranger danger

The Fear: I'm afraid someone will hurt or attack my child.

It's not surprising that this is a top fear. Protecting your child is one of the most basic parenting instincts. There are few things as awful to contemplate as your child being hurt in a random attack. Our fears are only intensified by the fact that actual attacks on children get a lot of attention in the media, which can make them seem more common.

The Reality: According to the Crimes Against Children Research Center (CCRC), based at the University of New Hampshire, parents do have some cause for concern. The latest statistics of reported and confirmed instances of child mistreatment show that about 1 in 100 kids suffered mistreatment or neglect of some kind.

But research by CCRC also points to good news: It turns out that the overall incidence of child mistreatment is dropping nationwide. Child physical abuse fell 2 percent from 2008 to 2009, for example, and child sexual abuse fell 5 percent. This continues a downward trend that started in 1992 in reported abuse of children.

According to sociologist David Finkelhor, who directs the CCRC, the exact causes of this drop are unclear. He suggests several factors that may play a part, including a decade of relative economic prosperity that began early in the 1990s, as well as an increase in law enforcement, parenting education, and anti-bullying efforts.

Finkelhor believes that new medications to treat depression and childhood behavior problems have also played a major role: "The development and dissemination of new treatments for mental health and other family problems have caused huge changes in our society and I'm sure have an impact on how children are treated," he says.

What You Can Do: According to Finkelhor, keeping your child safe means simply doing what comes naturally: Stay as tuned in to your child as possible. "Maintain a close and supportive relationship and keep the channels of communication open so your child will feel comfortable confiding in you if anything occurs," he says.

It's also important to know that perpetrators of physical abuse of children are usually family members rather than strangers. The best way to make children safer is to help them develop the tools they need to protect themselves.

Educate your child in an age-appropriate way about her body and appropriate and inappropriate forms of contact, and encourage her to seek help from you or other adults if she ever feels at risk. Read more about keeping your child safe from sexual abuse.

3. Accidents and injuries

The Fear: I'm afraid my child will be injured in an accident, like a car accident.

The Reality: This is a parenting fear that can't be discounted: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), motor vehicle injuries are the leading cause of death for children in the United States. In 2008, 968 children 14 years or younger died in car crashes, and roughly 168,000 were injured.

The good news is that this is a fear you can do something about. It turns out that 40 percent of the children who died in car crashes in 2008 were unrestrained by a car seat or seat belt, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Commission, and more than two-thirds of children fatally injured in car accidents were riding with a driver who had been drinking.

What You Can Do: A lot, according to experts like Alfred Sacchetti, chief of emergency services at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Camden, New Jersey. "The vast number of accidental trauma accidents are preventable," says Sacchetti.

Car seats, seat belts, bike helmets, and commonsense precautions on the playground: Sacchetti says these simple safety measures can make a tremendous amount of difference. "I'm amazed by how many kids I see riding around in the car unrestrained or riding bikes without a helmet," he says.

Sacchetti emphasizes that protecting against head injuries is particularly important: "In the overall scheme of things, medicine today can help a kid survive most things that happen to them — except injury to the neck and up. Severe head injuries are extremely complicated to treat."

He counsels parents to start requiring their children to use helmets when riding bikes, scooters, or skateboards from the earliest ages, so it's something children learn to do automatically.

Be sure your children are buckled in and that you are, too. And of course, you should never drink and drive. Learn more about the biggest car seat safety mistakes and how to avoid them.

4. Bullying

The Fear: I'm afraid my child won't fit in socially or will get picked on.

The Reality: This is another parenting fear that is impossible to dismiss, since bullying is widespread among American schoolchildren. About 1 in 7 students in kindergarten through high school has either been a bully or a victim of bullying.

Bullying should always be taken seriously, experts say, because it's been linked to long-term self-esteem issues, poor school performance, depression, and even suicide. Recent history also demonstrates that bullying can have widespread results. It turns out that bullying operates like a virus: The worst bullies are often children who've been bullied themselves. Studies indicate that most of the school shootings that have occurred around the country in recent years were perpetrated by kids who'd been bullied.

Partly as a result of these tragedies, there seems to be increased awareness of the costs and consequences of bullying. Some school districts around the country have introduced anti-bullying programs. These programs establish schoolwide anti-bullying policies and educate children, teachers, and parents about how to recognize and prevent bullying behavior.

Bullying expert Minne Fekkes's research, published in the Archives of Pediatric Adolescent Medicine, found that anti-bullying programs can effectively reduce bullying. His findings emphasize that these programs need to be regularly reinforced.

"Anti-bullying programs work best if they are re-introduced at the beginning of each school year," says Fekkes. "The policy should be explained, the rules made clear, and good supervision established." At least 35 states have enacted some type of anti-bullying legislation.

What You Can Do: Experts say that children who experience violence at home are more apt to bully others, so it's important to never treat your child violently or allow others to do so.

Fekkes urges parents and teachers alike to be proactive and teach children from a young age that they shouldn't tease or call people names. "It's important to let teachers and administrators know if your child experiences or observes bullying at school," Fekkes says. If your child is a bully, take this behavior seriously." Lobby your child's school to provide anti-bullying programs.

Initiate regular discussions with your children about how they treat others and how to handle bullying if they experience or observe it. There are good books about bullying available for children of all ages — the Anti-Defamation League has compiled a comprehensive list.

You should also help your child develop the resiliency and skills she needs to protect herself. "Talk to your child about ways to respond to bullying," says Fekkes, "and even practice scripts that she can use when and if she encounters bullying."

5. Weighty matters

The Fear: I'm afraid my child will have weight problems such as obesity or anorexia.

The Reality: Both ends of the scale — obesity and severe weight loss — represent serious risks for growing children. Childhood overweight and obesity rates are both on the rise: According to the CDC, childhood obesity has more than tripled in the last 30 years.

At the other end of the spectrum, more and more children and teens are developing anorexia or bulimia. What's more, these disorders are showing up more frequently in younger children than they have in the past.

What You Can Do: The good news is that you can help protect your child from the dangers of obesity. Nobody — not your child's doctor, not her gym teacher, not the director of the school lunch program, not even your child herself — has as much control over what she eats and how she spends her time as you do.

To help your child avoid excessive weight gain, help your child maintain a healthy diet and active lifestyle — and be sure to do so yourself.

You are your child's most important role model. Get your family off the couch and get outside and get moving. Harness your child's natural energy — go for a hike, toss a ball around, or play chase.

In general, try to help your children develop a healthy relationship with food. Make family meals a daily ritual: Savor both your food and each other's company and serve reasonable portions of nutritious foods. Limit sweets, including juice, as well as fatty and processed foods. Offer your child plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.

California pediatrician Laurel Schultz urges parents to keep the sweets and junk foods in the house to a minimum. "You don't want to forbid it completely, but your kids get enough of that stuff in the outside world," she says. "If you have it around, it will be a source of temptation. You can't expect your kid to eat just one corn chip!"

Fortunately, there's also a lot you can do as a parent to help your child avoid developing an eating disorder. Schultz, who regularly treats children with eating disorders in her San Francisco practice, urges parents to talk to their children about nutrition, exercise, and good health, rather than focusing on calories and weight.

"Let your kids know that it's not about being too fat or too thin," she says. "The important thing is to have a healthy body, which means making good food choices and getting regular exercise."

You should also watch out for changes in your child's behavior, Schultz says. Children who are developing anorexia become increasingly secretive and solitary, and may try to hide their weight loss under baggy clothes.

Schultz and other experts emphasize that if you suspect that your child is developing an eating disorder, you should get help right away, because early intervention makes a cure far more likely. "If you can catch anorexia early, it's more likely that your child will overcome it before it takes hold," says Schultz. Consult your child's doctor, who will probably recommend that your child also see a therapist and a nutritionist.

On this occasion we bring you a beautiful story for children, especially on these Christmas dates when the little ones await the arrival of their Majesties on January 6. Then you can read with your children the tale of the Magi from the East, in which you will be able to know the story adapted for children of the three wise men. Use this short story to tell them who they were, what gifts they brought, how they got to Bethlehem and to visit baby Jesus.

Once upon a time many, many years ago, there were three kings who, in addition to being very wise, were able to read and interpret the stars. One lived in Europe, another in Asia and another in Africa and the three of them spent nights and nights looking at the stars, what none of them knew is that one of them would change their life completely.

A good day, Melchor A European king, long-bearded was white, as long as his intelligence was looking at the stars from his palace. Suddenly he saw a shooting star, which stopped high in the sky and shone brighter than the others. Melchior was so intrigued that he decided to head towards the horizon to see her closer. He rode on his camel and set out on a journey.

Gaspar, he reigned in Asia, his hair and beard were brown and, like Melchior, he was a man of great wisdom. He too saw the star from his castle and without thinking twice, he mounted his camel and set out after the beautiful light.

In Africa, another king famous for his astrological predictions, was looking at the sky. its name was Baltasar and the bright star also rested on him. Melchior ran to his stables, mounted his camel, and headed after the bright star.

After a few days of travel, the three kings met on the road. They both began to talk about the sky and that new star that attracted them powerfully. All three came to the same conclusion: the star would lead to the birth of a new king, a king of kings.

All agreed that a king of kings needed gifts worthy of his person. Melchor therefore decided to bring gold; Gaspar, incense; and Baltasar, myrrh, the best presents of the time.

After a long journey, the Magi arrived as far as Bethlehem, right there where the star had settled and they found with great joy and just as they had thought a baby, with his mother Mary and his father, Joseph. Melchor, Gaspar and Baltasar, knelt in front of the manger where the Child slept and they put the gifts at his feet.

The baby Jesus was so happy with his visit that granted the three Wise Men the gift of eternal life and the ability to bring gifts to all the children of the world once a year.

In addition to knowing more about the history and origin of the Three Wise Men of the East, this story can help you work on reading comprehension as well as certain language skills. Therefore, below we propose some entertaining exercises with which the children can deepen the story.

We start with some reading comprehension questions. If your child has been paying attention while you read the story, they will have no problem answering them. And in case you did not know how to find any of the answers, you can reread the story as many times as you want.

- What was the hobby that united the three Magi?

- What did you see in the sky that made you set off?

- What means of transport did the Magi use to get around?

- Did the three wise men meet on the way?

- Where would the star they were following take them?

If your little one has managed to answer the above questions correctly, surely they will not have any problem complete the following sentences that we propose based on what the story tells:

- Melchor lived in ......... Gaspar lived in ......... Baltasar lived in ...........

- Melchior's beard is colored .........., while Gaspar's beard color was ........

- Melchior took the child Jesus ............, Gaspar took him ......... and Baltasar, ..............

- The child Jesus gave the Magi the power of ................

And to finish these reading activities, related to the tale of the Magi, below we propose an exercise in which the children have to look up words in the dictionary. We encourage you to use a physical dictionary, rather than an online one, for children to practice their search skills and patience. Look for all the words that the little one has not understood and does not know. These are possibly some of them:

- Firmament.

- Intrigued.

- Undertaken.

- Incense.

- Myrrh.

- Faculty.

In addition, we suggest you do some Christmas dictations with which children can practice spelling.

If your children have liked reading this story about the origin of the Magi, they will also love the following resources that we bring you. These are different activities such as stories, poems or Christmas carols that are carried out by these three very beloved figures of Christmas.

- Poem by Rubén Darío
This Nicaraguan poet left behind a beautiful poem starring the three wise men of the East. In it, each one presents himself before the child Jesus offering him all his love. Due to the structure in which the poem is composed, it can easily become a small school representation in which each child plays a king. They will have a great time!

- Roscón de Reyes recipe
In this compilation of activities related to the Three Kings, we could not help but propose to prepare a rich sweet roscón recipe for Three Kings Day. In countries like Spain, this delicious cake is an indispensable tradition for January 6. And it is that the whole family gathers around this sweet to share a beautiful moment all together.

At Christmas, the roscones de Reyes can be bought in almost any bakery, but you can also prepare it yourself at home. The recipe is elaborate, but once you have a little practice almost anyone can do it. As ingredients we need: wheat flour, sugar, butter, yeast, eggs, milk, lemon, almonds, orange blossom water and candied fruits ... There is no better Christmas treat!

[Read +: Complete recipe for the roscón de Reyes]

- Traditional Christmas Carol of the Magi
The best Christmas soundtrack is Christmas carols. These popular songs, which everyone knows and sings with great enthusiasm during the Christmas season, can be sung at any time of the day: while you go to school in the car, during the shower, in front of the tree ... While children sing them, it can become a beautiful Christmas greeting, don't you think?

Here we leave you a beautiful Christmas carol that, how could it be otherwise, is carried out by the three Wise Men. It is the Christmas song of: 'The kings have already arrived and there were three of them. Melchor, Gaspar and the black Baltasar. Arrope and honey will bring you and a white coat of real alpaca.

- Write the letter to the Magi
The Magi are very far-sighted, that is why they like to have the children's letters very soon, as soon as possible. If your kids haven't written theirs yet ... quick! Luckily, they are still on time because, as their name suggests, the Kings are magical and they always have the solution. Choose a very nice model and write! You cannot forget to thank their Majesties for the gifts they left you last year.

The alias name you give your child can influence the personality and the whole development, but especially the way it is perceived by others, in social groups. Not only does the baby's christening name put its mark on its development, but its diminutives or inspirational allusions can have the same influence. Even though the alint's name comes from the immense love for him and it is your way of saying something else "I love you", there are cases where the chosen nickname is not the most inspired choice.

The alias or nickname of the child is a name that parents either compose from the baptismal name of the child or invent it locally, inspired by the personality and appearance of the child.

Usually, these cries come on their own and do not require time to think, and slowly, it becomes your habit to shout it. Until you realize it, you end up calling the baby "baby" or "bubulin" even at the age of 15-18, which is not recommended.

Think well, before you feed your child, of the implications that the chosen name will have on him! Here's what you need to know when it comes to choosing your child's alias and how it influences their development!

Names of children and their frequent diminutives

There are a lot of names of Romanian children, and not only, that are suitable for all kinds of aliveness and diminutives, which are more bizarre, funny or even ugly. Here are the most common ones.

  • Alexander - Andu, Andutu, Xandru, Alex, Ali etc .;
  • Andreea - Deea, Andre, An, Deuta, Duta;
  • Stefan - Fane, Fanut, Fanel, Stef;
  • Andrei - Ardei, Andi, Andreiutzu, Andisor, Andutu;
  • Cristina - Crina, Cris, Tina;
  • Catinca - Tinca, Cati, Tincuta;
  • Ionut - Ion, Nelu, Nelutu, Ionica;
  • Maria - Mariuca, Mari, Maricica;
  • Mihai - Misu, Mita, Mihaita;
  • Bogdan - Bobo, Bogdanel;
  • Isabela - Isa, Bela, Beluta, Izzy;
  • Lucas - Lulu, Lucuto, Lucico;
  • Laura - Laurici, Laurel, Laur;
  • Ana - Anuca, Anuta, Anus;
  • Iulia - Iulia, Lulu, Iulica;
  • Elena - Nuti, Nuta, Elenus, Elenuca;
  • Sandra - Andra, Ada, Sanda, Sandrina;
  • Gabriela - Gabi, Gabitzu, Bitzu, Gabitz.

Common alias names for children

Beyond diminishing the baptismal name, many parents opt for personalized aliases, in which they dismember their children, especially when they are babies.

Although these attachments occur at a young age, many of them are long-term and they define the personality of the child even in adolescence or later. There are children who remain with their baby's name or surname until they reach adulthood and even then.

It is, however, strange to hear a person of 18, 25 or 35 years old who is still shouting "babies", "bibs", "bondacel", "prichindel", "pici" or with other names that no longer find their place.

Here are the most common cries that parents give to their babies and they get to follow them all their lives:



























guinea fowl;


nose etc.

Things to consider when choosing a baby name?

It is very important that when choosing your baby's first name, keep in mind a few essentials, so that how you cry does not affect his development, confidence or self-esteem.

Choose nicknames by sex

Even if Bondacel or Gandacel can be shouted by a boy and a girl, it is important to choose the nickname according to the sex of the child - for the boys - bondacel, bubu, bebe, brotacel, cockroach, etc., and for the girls - gargle, bubulina, buburuza and so on

It is an important help you give to the little boy, at a young age, in trying to establish his sexual identity and to make a difference between the sexes.

Sexual identity begins to form only at preschool age, and choosing a first name based on sex helps you better understand the difference between him and the opposite sex.

Choose soul beads and do not get inspired by the defects of the child

Even if, for you, all the defects of your little one seem to you the most drastic and beautiful, it is not advisable to put a nickname to highlight these imperfections.

For example, if your baby is fatter, it is not advisable to shout "purcelus", "fat", if he has bigger and buccal eyes, it is not recommended to shout "eye" or if his nose becomes more evident. to call him "pinocchio" or "nose". All these names can be heard and spread in his group of friends, in grades or school and can mark the child negatively. He may be affected by the way others cry and his self-esteem might suffer.

Choose a nice and positive alint name

It is advisable to opt for a nice, positive and that comes from the soul, from the love for him.

Opt for chords that sound nice and sweet, have a pleasant sound. If the baby is older, you can consult with him and ask his opinion about what he likes best or where he is most found.

It is very important for the little one to find himself in the way you shout, to like how he sounds, to be melodious.

Don't insist on calling a name if you don't like it!

If your little one shows signs that the ally name you have chosen doesn't like him or that he refuses to respond to it, change the ally. It is clear that he does not find himself in it or that something disturbs him in his loudness.

Try several types of leashes, until your little one approves one of them and finds himself in it.

How do you feed your baby and why? What diminutives of the name do you use when you shout it and how did others get used to shouting it? Do you think that the baby's lark can mark its development or not? Tell us your opinions and tips in the comment section below!

How do you increase your chances of giving birth naturally?

Natural or vaginal birth is a challenge for pregnant women, but most of them do not scare so easily and would do anything to go through this unique experience. There are several ways to greatly reduce pain and discomfort during her time without resorting to specific medication and thus maximizing your chances of giving birth naturally. One of the best is to try to avoid labor induction.

Avoid inducing or triggering labor!
