Any childhood trauma, Whatever the type of trauma suffered by the child, we must convey the idea that caregivers or parents are a team. A group that protects each other, that solves problems together, that does not let any of its members fall, that is at the foot of the gun to help each other. This is what a child should perceive. The problem is not only for him, the problem belongs to the whole family and together, they must work to find the best possible solution, and this is how you have to tell him. It is also important to remind him how brave he has been, firstly for having told him, secondly for having survived and thirdly for working daily so that the trauma and his memory remain in the past.
The most visible consequences of the trauma experienced by child abuse, we appreciate in manifestations of the type: memory loss, disruptive behaviors, phobias, nightmares and flashbacks, hyperactivity, aggressiveness, avoidance of places that remind you of the incident or attention deficit, among others. But there is something much deeper that sometimes we forget and that is that the child's brain is in formation, and with it his personality and self-concept.
Powerful or repeated traumatic events can damage the structure of your neural connections, over-activating the brain's alarm systems (emotional and sensory system) and deregulating and inhibiting the self-control system, that is, the one you will need to calm down and be able to guide his behavior in the future.
Let's protect children from trauma and its consequences to grow up to be happy adults!
" Keep supporting playrooms for poor and vulnerable children "

Children's lives have changed. They stopped going to school, playing in the park, visiting their cousins. And they are not the same either. They go out with caution, with fear because during this time, they learned that physical contact is dangerous.
There are multiple traumatic factors that the pandemic is leaving us and children are one of the most vulnerable groups.
Now more than ever it is important to promote Family Play, through play new knowledge and skills are acquired, in the psychological, cognitive and social part. This is why it is said that playing is best enjoyed in childhood, nowadays the family must be involved in the education of its members and all take part in the game, as a tool in which better family relationships are produced and create new learning in children, playing as a family is a very useful way to educate and transmit values and examples of behavior, so play is the best ally to achieve these objectives or goals.
