Rules Of Social Communication That Parents Must Respect

Many parents currently upload videos and photos of their children to social networks; it is a way of sharing the love they feel for them and for the world to see it. On Facebook and Instagram are the social networks where parents enjoy posting photos of their sons and daughters online. Hitting the ‘share’ button is easy, but what you post on social media can affect the safety of your children.
When social networks are not used well or given more importance than it is, it can also affect the relationship with your friends and even the relationship that others have with you. Parents need to know some tips before thinking about the next update.
Ask your children for consent.
Perhaps you are used to making decisions for your children, when it comes to food, clothing and even extracurricular activities (although the latter is important that they decide what they like to do and what not). But it may be a good idea to ask if they agree to you sharing their images for other people to see. In this way, you are teaching your children that they are masters of their bodies and that they have the decision to have their privacy.
Between 4 and 6 years old, you can already ask your children for permission because they are capable of understanding it. It is a way to give children their own voice and to learn respect for themselves and others. They will learn in the same way, not to share in the future photographs of other people that may be humiliating when they have access to their own social networks.
Privacy settings
Although this is obvious, it never hurts to remember it. There are many users of social networks, who use them every day, who forget to configure the privacy of what they share with others. It is essential that when you have a private social account, the privacy filters are activated because in this way the images or videos that you upload online will not be seen by everyone, only those people who are closest to you.
In addition, it is also important not to accept all the friend requests that come to you or from those people you do not know. Remember that social networks are a virtual window into your daily life, and giving more information than necessary through images and videos is never a good option.
Think about the feelings of others
Those birthday party snapshots can be emotionally damaging for kids (and parents) who weren’t invited. If you want to share images or videos that you think can hurt others emotionally, to avoid having problems with other people, the idea is to share those images privately. The same is true if you are pregnant, you may have friends who are struggling with infertility, and it can be painful for them that you are in a state of good hope.
Beware of photos of other’s children.
Be careful with the photographs of the children of others, if you want to publish a photograph of your child’s friend, always ask their father or mother for permission before sharing it on a specific network, and also, keep in mind the privacy that is important to have on social media.
Be a good model
Older children often pay attention to what you post on social media. Think twice before making an offensive comment, watch out for getting into fights online … Be a good role model and if you have to discuss something or settle a conflict, do it in person. Parents should support children in learning to use social media in positive, constructive, and productive ways.…

Helpful Methods to Lower Fever in Children

Fever is a natural defense mechanism that the body uses to protect itself from infection and kill viruses or bacteria. In general, the elevation of the corporal temperature does not represent a danger for the children since it is only a symptom of a disease that is developing, but if it exceeds 39ºC or 40ºC it could induce seizures or cause temporary or permanent brain changes. For this reason, it is normal for many parents to be alarmed every time their little one has a fever, even if it is not very high.

However, unless the fever is very high, in which case you should take your child to the hospital, you can monitor their temperature variations at home. For this you can resort to medications such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, always under medical prescription. However, if you prefer to resort to other natural methods before, we offer you some traditional methods to reduce fever.

Dress him up in cool clothes

Clothing has the property of conserving body heat, preventing the outside air from coming into direct contact with the skin and cooling it. Therefore, when a child has a fever and is clothed, especially if he has several pieces of clothing, it will be more difficult to lower his temperature. In this case, the first step is to remove the thickest clothing and put on loose, cool clothing so that the heat can dissipate and the temperature gradually begins to drop.

Adjust the room temperature

A useful method of reducing a child’s body temperature is to regulate the room temperature. If the temperature in the room is very low it will not help lower the fever but will make you feel colder, but if it is too high it will accentuate the fever. Ideally, the child should be in a cool room, where there are no drafts. If it’s winter and you have the heat on, you should lower the temperature a bit. On the other hand, if it is summer and it is very hot, it would be convenient to put the air conditioning.

Give him a warm water bath

Putting your child in a bathtub of water at the same time or giving him a warm shower can help lower his fever. When your warm body comes into contact with a warmer environment, your metabolism will try to compensate for this difference and will gradually begin to lower the temperature. After approximately 10 minutes, you will notice how the fever will have dropped about 2 degrees. Of course, it prevents the water from being too cold.

Put wet compresses

As many movies of yesteryear show, this method is very effective in reducing fever. Just take some cloths or towels, moisten them in warm water and place them on the child’s forehead, neck and wrists. When they get hot or dry, you moisten them again and place them in the same places. What happens is that these three points are more sensitive to changes in temperature than the rest of the body, so that when you lower the temperature locally, the temperature of the rest of the body drops faster.

Make him put his feet on the ground

The feet are one of the parts of the body most sensitive to changes in temperature and function as a kind of thermostat that regulates body temperature. Therefore, a useful strategy when your child has a fever is to remove his shoes and have him walk barefoot on the floor, as long as it is not too cold. In this way, the feet will gradually begin to warm up and the temperature of the rest of the body will begin to drop.…
