Especially in a difficult moment like this, a decline can happen, a fail in their children of curiosity and interests.
"This difficult moment linked to the pandemic and the lockdown can cause a weakening, an evaporation of interests and curiosity. However it is important to underline how children and young people breathe, absorb the value that the adults of reference, therefore family environment and social environment, show, with respect to everything that does not concern the consumption of objects, in particular technological "specifies the doctor.
The abundance of boredom and passions
"It is therefore very important in the growth of children to be able to transmit passions, can give value also to boredom like a creative moment, a moment in which it is possible for the child to experience a creativity "clarifies the doctor. It is also important to have in one's baggage of experiences a legacy, that of the parents, linked to their passions, their interests.
"It is certainly not easy in this era when hyper-consumerism celebrates more than anything else the immediate consumption of objects, in the illusion of full satisfaction. Hobbies and interests are fundamental vice versa in the growth of a child", concludes the doctor.
