He does not want to eat in the canteen anymore!

"Can not we eat today?" "But if my love, it's Monday!" And here is your big or big who makes soup with a grimace. Same scenario on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday. What's happening ?

Do not take this rejection of the canteen for a banal whim. It reflects a discomfort more or less important. By listening to your child, you will defuse this moment of crisis.

Why he does not like the canteen?

  • Mother-child links are very marked by food. If he takes his first meals in the canteen and he has not been used to eating outside the house, your little schoolboy may be disturbed by this new experience. In the canteen, he finds himself in front of a food "neutral" and depersonalized. The ritual of the family meal disappears and your child is afraid of losing the emotional connection he has with you.
  • The canteen is a place of community quite different from the family cocoon. The canteen has a proper functioning that it may be difficult to get used to.
  • The noise, the hustle can make this moment of relaxation a particularly stressful moment. He does not feel safe in the canteen and wants to go home to reassure himself, to relax.
  • Brussels sprouts, fish or radishes... All this may be new and very surprising to him! It is possible that it is destabilized in front of these new dishes, tastes and smells.
  • Before and after the meal, Classroom children at all levels are often gathered in the same playground. The little ones are sometimes impressed by the older ones who often play the big guys.

Dialogue, a good recipe

  • Listen to him and show him that you take into account his anxiety. Feeling understood, he will be more open to receive your arguments. If he refuses overnight to go to the canteen, ask him if anything went wrong with his friends. Is it the food that bothers him? The conditions of the meal? Did he get scolded? Do we force him to finish his plate?
  • Reassure him that it's not about getting rid of himbut that the canteen is the consequence of family life: Mom and dad work, the journey is too long between school and home.
  • Tell him where you eat lunch while he's at the canteen. When he grows up, he too will have lunch outside. Introduce him the advantages of the canteen: he meets new friends, he can play with them in the yard after the meal.

Concoct small gestures of attention

  • Pamper him when you are in family. Give him time in the morning with a nice breakfast. In the evenings and on the weekends, take care of meal times by preparing the dishes he likes. Slip a napkin, toothbrush or other object into your bag that will remind you of your home.
  • Vary your diet at home to make it a habit to eat everything. Ask him about the menus of the week. Ask him what he liked, suggest him to do the same dishes at home.
  • Meet the staff with him, if it's possible, to find out how the meal is going. By weaving a bond with the ladies in the canteen, you mitigate the separation. In some institutions, parents accompany their child the first days, a good way to get used to it at first ...

Who frames them in the canteen?

In toddlers, specialized territorial agents of nursery schools, the "ladies of service", participate in the supervision of the canteen. At their side, animators or supervisors, chosen by the mayor, assume the supervision of the elementary classes. These are often more or less trained and motivated students. Everything depends on the requirement of the mayor who recruits them. In fact, the rate of supervision varies according to the cities: between one adult for every 10 children and one for about 32 for primary school children.


How to educate on equality to prevent gender violence

My daughter is in her teens and one of these days I heard her talking to a friend on the phone, lamenting about something that had happened to her friend. At the end of their conversation, she came to me scared, hugged me and said: 'Mom, Maria's mother has died and it was her boyfriend who killed her. Ufffff ... at this moment I thought 'why, in the times we live in, do I have to talk to my little girl about that?' On the other hand, I was invaded by enormous pain over what happened.

After the bad drink, I have taken advantage of the situation to talk with my daughter, and make her understand that this is not right and that there are ways to prevent violence. We have talked about respect and tolerance towards others, identifying violent attitudes and gestures, and how to get away from them. We have also talked about the need to be with people who bring us well-being and non-violence, and above all that nothing, absolutely nothing, justifies an aggression or violence, no matter how 'small' it may be.

However, children learn from what we do and live, and less from what we tell them. Teaching them to have coherence, criteria, to learn to express approval or rejection in different situations, will depend much more on our behavior and our attitudes. We must be an example to our children when it comes to educating them in the equality of the sexes.

And it turns out that there is a project ('School of Philosophers') prepared by the Brains College, in collaboration with the Women's Institute, to educate on gender equality, as a way to prevent violence.

The project is aimed at students of different ages, from 5 to 12 years old and suggests a decalogue of practices that can be used to educate the little ones in equivalence and avoid violence:

1. Observe and listen to children
Stop to listen to what concepts they handle regarding genders and what attitudes they have when they interact with their peers, to know what we are facing.

2. Destroy prejudices among children
When they affirm something categorically, you have to answer with a question: why? In trying to reason prejudice, it ends up destroying itself.

3. Polish the valid ideas that children have
We must adjust their statements and their behaviors. Furthermore, we must make them understand that generalizations are misleading.

4. Involve children in household chores
Assign them responsibilities or daily activities that have traditionally been considered "women's things" or "men's things."

5. Share information (from school, work environment, media ...)
Share the information that reaches our homes. This generates, first, a conversation habit, a daily meeting point for family members. Furthermore, contrasting everyone's opinions invites attentive listening and nurtures critical capacity. It helps us understand what they are like, what they see, what they think and how they feel.

6. Be brave and understand your own gender limitations
We have been brought up in a society that, like today, tried to assign a role to each sex. We have to relearn some macho habits, and for that we have to look at ourselves with a critical eye.

7. Limiting children's access to harmful stimuli
Design sensible access to television content and tutor it. We must ensure that the moment of television is shared with us, and we have to answer any questions that arise regarding what they are watching, including "uncomfortable" questions about sexuality or relationships between men and women.

8. Play universal games with children
The traditional games that boys and girls shared, games that do not need tools or defined roles. We think, for example, of the handkerchief, the blind man's chicken, the rescue ... fundamentally funny encounters that do not understand genres or go out of style.

9. Setting an example for children is essential
They watch us like avid spectators, repeat our words and imitate our behaviors. They see how we relate to them, with our partner, with ourselves, with the family environment and with society. Behavioral patterns are inherited, and it is not easy to detach from this family influence. Let's avoid roles, topics, common places regarding gender, and let them create their own opinions based on respect and empathy for what is different.

10. Watch and keep in mind that the path of learning does not end
We do not settle, or fall into the "terrific" To teach habits, we must learn to be, as Aristotle said, our best version possible. That is happiness. And to achieve it we have to unlearn, criticize ourselves, see and understand the reality of our environment and change what does not work. And today, the role that has been assigned to women does not work, and it is up to us to amend it. This is a unique opportunity to definitely change things.

I always have an apple

Maria eats a banana

and He was wearing an orange.

Vicente looks at us sad,

you have forgotten breakfast,

and asks us to share

a piece of each.

Don Ramón has approached

and gives him a peach,

a little pineapple juice,

and a pepperoni sandwich.

How lucky is Vicente!

You forget breakfast

we all give it a little

and eat more than anyone.
