In the realm of children’s rights, one of the rights is also that of freedom of thought, conscience and religion. Every child has the right to freely express religion or belief.
The family is the environment in which the rights of children are first introduced to and exercised. By educating our children, we pass on our knowledge and values, but we also teach them and help them discover them. By teaching us about customs and beliefs, we enrich the children’s world and support children’s right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. No matter what the child’s or family’s beliefs or beliefs are, we teach children to respect, accept and appreciate the richness of diversity.
“The Indicator”: From ancient times, people have been telling stories
Since ancient times, as far as we know, people have been telling stories. One theory is that stories have already been told in caves and have been unstoppably ever since. Until the letter appeared, but then, stories were transmitted by listening. They were transmitted by a “cursor”. As they were not recorded, talking from talking was different. And as they were not written down, each was different, new. How many times have your child interrupted in a story you are repeating, or have corrected you because they noticed you changed something.
Well, start talking. Each new story, new piece, is different from any previous one.
It’s time for the Christian holiday, Easter. Tell the child the meaning of the word Easter, when it is celebrated, about traditional preparations and the importance of this holiday for believers. Don’t forget to ask your child what he or she knows about Easter. While teaching, you can certainly reach out to the encyclopedia or to the Internet.
In addition to the celebration of Easter, many customs have developed which differ from the countries in which Easter is celebrated. Explore customs in Croatia and beyond. You may or may not have been involved in some of them. If so, encourage each individual family member to “jump into the shoes of the curler” during the holiday meal. You can start from the oldest. Let him share with you a story from the past, about customs as he grew up, with memories of the customs of his family, the place he grew up in. Finally, let the child say it. Let him tell you if he remembers the past year or so, the way you or someone he knew celebrated Easter.
“Sprint” – If you have enough room in the household for not just a race, but a brisk walk, play this game as well, but choose the boiled eggs again. Each participant should choose a card and a spoon in which to place the card. Mark start and finish. The winner is the one who first takes aim with the egg in the spoon. The younger ones are allowed to hold the spoon with one hand and the older teeth. If someone drops an egg during a race, it returns to the beginning and starts from the beginning.
