Why should you not ask the educators 'Did the child eat?'
There are many parents who, as soon as the teacher takes their child out the door, they ask him: Did he eat? This is not the most important question to ask. Lira Gjika tells a short but significant story.
"A father went to his son's kindergarten and met the teacher. As soon as the teacher saw him, she began to say many good words about his son: that he was a good, good boy and that she respected him. The boy, who was present, was surely waiting for the father's positive reaction, but the father, indifferent to what he heard, answered: that he, his son, did not eat and that is why he had come to see her, the educator, to He spoke to the boy, "to be fed."
Parents, if you obsess over your child's food, you have automatically pushed them into the background, everything is human. And you have paralyzed the child's individual ability to realize himself. You convey to the child the fear and underestimation of his effort, to grow as a person and to respect his family. By obsessing over nutrition, you instill survival mechanisms in the child (since food is directly related to survival) and inadvertently show the child that humanity and its efforts, the child, are not important. Over time, you will talk about the importance of learning, but when it was necessary, you did not appreciate it and did not even think about human values", writes Lira Gjika.
