UV rays not only attack the skin, but can also damage the retina in the eye. And because children’s eyes are particularly susceptible, your offspring should always wear sunglasses when the sun is shining.

Do not underestimate the dangers of UV rays for children’s eyes

No question, sunlight has many positive effects on us humans. It stimulates cell formation, strengthens the immune system and improves performance. But without sufficient sun protection, UV radiation from the sun can damage our health. Not only the skin is affected, but also the eyes. Glare and UV radiation can cause many eye ailments in the long term. Children are even more at risk than adults because their eyes are not yet fully developed. For example, they have larger pupils and lighter lenses than adults, which can cause more UV rays to enter the eye and damage the retina. Nathalie Gümmer from Apollo-Optik and Kerstin Kruschinski from Kuratorium Gutes Sehen e.V. summarise the most important points on the subject of sun protection for children’s eyes in seven points:

Flexible arrival: start of free work (FA)

The children come to school from half past eight. At 8:00 a.m., school begins bindingly for all children. Each child is greeted personally and writes his own "Days Foresight". If necessary, the current learning objectives are discussed with an educator.

FA / teacher presentations

In free work, children can work with free work materials according to their level of learning. Children work individually or in small groups.

During this time, the pedagogues are there as learning companions, they make new offers when a child needs a new challenge or help when a child is looking for help.
Presentations by the educators also take place during the freelance work. Here, an educator shows new materials from a small group of children. The children can then continue to work with this material alone.

Your little pirate will be happy to help you prepare for the children’s birthday. For the game you need to fold small paper boats. You need about three to four boats per child. The more paper boats you have, the more difficult and therefore more exciting the pirate game becomes. As pirate gold, you ideally take gold coins, either plastic or chocolate. You need so many gold coins that there is a coin hidden under every third ship. After you have folded all the paper boats, a gold coin is stuck under every third ship.

COPD – Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

What is COPD? The abbreviation stands for “chronic obstructive pulmonary disease“; this means chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Apart from the lungs themselves, the upper respiratory tract is also affected by the disease; as the disease progresses, other organs such as the heart may be damaged (cor pulmonale).

The disease is characterized by partial reversible constriction of the bronchi. Since COPD occurs mainly in smokers, many sufferers consider the disease symptoms to be “normal smoker’s cough” and delay the visit to the doctor.

"Childhood obesity is not a cosmetic problem or something the child will simply grow out of. Obese children tend to become obese adults and there are many medical problems with obesity. Children now take the same type of medication as their parents manage blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol. That is terrifying, but it is true ", said Dr. Rani Whitfield, a spokesman for the American Heart Association.

Many parents see their two-year-olds as too small to set limits. However, it is important to start early so that tantrums do not become a preferred method of enforcing your will.

Setting two-year limits is not an easy task. It is normal for children of this age to want to be independent and do what they want. They also think that a tantrum gives them what they want. So it’s important to stay calm and in control.

When parents set rules and limits, they do so to keep children from always doing their will. moreover teach them to value and respect themselves the most.
