Heat stroke (hyperthermia) is a life-threatening condition. This phenomenon occurs as a result of severe overheating. Often the body temperature rises due to the fact that the body can’t cool down, we have disrupted the process of thermoregulation.
Particularly susceptible to thermal shock the kids, as their body is still not strong enough, many processes are not yet perfect in it.
Kids are very easily subjected to heat in the hot season, for example, while walking in hot weather, and also for dehydration. Many parents make the huge mistake of dressing the baby warmer than required by the season of the year or weather conditions.

I was standing near the escalator and suddenly noticed a young mother who tried to force her daughter to stand on a moving stage. The child, who looked about four years, lagged behind, clinging to the railing and cried: “no, No, mom, I’m scared!” The mother, whose hands were full of parcels, continued to pull the child “don’t be such a baby, and she said to her – I’m embarrassed for you. There is nothing terrible”.
At this point, tall silver-haired man, who was waiting to get on the escalator, leaned over to the little girl and said, “You know what it is? This is the ladder for young rabbits. At night when the store is closed, they jump on the stairs. It’s their favorite game.

Then with a serious expression trustingly took his hand and together they went up the escalator.

Michel de Montaigne, French philosopher, also believed: “Know by heart does not mean to know.” And saying the same thing: “don’t need a scientist and need clever”. Raising a child, teaching him to think, and not madly to memorize and repeat.
2. Develop child care
It is very important in the upbringing of the child from the first months of a child’s life to encourage and contribute to children’s care and concentration. Continue reading
