The pediatrician recommends weaning because breast milk has lost its effectiveness. The dentist to prevent the baby from having cavities. The Mother-in-law so he doesn’t get The educator recommends weaning for baby to adapt faster at school. The psychologist for the child not to be infantilizada The Co-worker at the end of maternity leave is easier for mom. The nutritionist recommends weaning for the baby to eat better. The Professional of any medical specialty to be able to write a treatment for mother The husband so that the wife no longer complain of fatigue. Sleep consultant recommends weaning so the baby sleeps all night. Fonoaudióloga for child to start talking at once. The neighbor because she thinks it’s ugly big baby

Do you know what these recommendations have in common? They all need solid scientific evidence to justify them. They are nothing but a personal or professional opinion supported on questionable arguments and of dubious intention. They are just a sample of ignorance and prejudice around breastfeeding. These are some of the obstacles we will need to face to make it For Society in general it is much more comfortable to play the guilt of breast fatigue on the demand of the baby than to provide the necessary support and support so that this mother can fulfill the arduous and challenging task of creating a healthy human being in all aspects

As long as our culture continues to view breastfeeding as the root of all mother evils and weaning as the ideal solution of all its problems, we will continue as a species, moving away from our essence, creating fragile and fragile bonds with our offspring .

In any case, the weaning decision is the mother and the baby, exclusively, and not the doctor or society. So let’s stop selling illusion to breastfeeding mothers, since breastfeeding is rarely the real problem and weaning is no guarantee of anything. Mothers Need effective support, not guesses. Be Tribe and don’t stumble

Mindfulness and meditation will now be part of the curriculum in 370 schools in England


Most of the time, when children act out by kicking and screaming expletives, it is because they do not understand what they are going through, and cannot find a better way to release their feelings. When a child acts out, know that it is most likely because they are struggling to understand complex emotions that they are feeling for the first time in their lives.

Schools in England have started to tackle this problem in a new way, and that is by teaching mindfulness and meditation in the classroom to improve the youth’s overall mental health. In 370 schools across the country, children will be taught how to meditate, techniques for muscle relaxation and breathing exercises for mindfulness. The secondary school students will also get a more hands-on education to learn about awareness and how to increase this in their everyday lives. This program is being done under the mental health study that the British government is running up until 2021.

¿Nos volvemos adultos a los 25 años? Esto es lo que dice la neurociencia

“Te encuentras ahora en otra etapa. Eres una persona adulta”.

A una determinada edad, la sociedad considera que ya tienes la capacidad de asumir ciertas responsabilidades.

¿Pero cómo se fija ese momento en que “nos volvemos adultos”?

No tiene que ver con poder casarse y votar, algo que en muchos países puedes hacer a los 16 y a los 18 años.

Para Peter Jones, profesor del instituto de neurociencia epiCentre, de la Universidad de Cambridge, no podemos decir que hay una niñez y una adultez.

“Lo que hay es un camino”, señaló Jones, quien participó este mes en una conferencia sobre el desarrollo del cerebro organizada por la Academia de Ciencias Médicas de Reino Unido.
