If you have suggestions or opinions on child development topics that you’d like to share, then this is the post for you.

On September 19th and 20th, the IDB will hold a meeting entitled “Quality of Services for Early Childhood Development.” It will involve ministers, deputy ministers and other senior government officials working on the design and implementation of early childhood policies in the various countries of Latin America and the Caribbean.

The purpose of the meeting is to conduct an assessment of how countries are managing the quality of services for early childhood development and to discuss the critical building blocks required to ensure it. As an outcome of this meeting, we are looking for authorities in health and education, as well as other ministries responsible for the care of children between the ages of 0 and 6 and their families, to come away with a set of experiences, tools and ideas that will be useful in the management of public policies on child development aimed at improving quality. The following countries will be participating in the event: Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Jamaica, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay.

We’d like to invite you to propose two topics that you feel would be interesting to include on this meeting’s agenda. We’ll be sure to share the results of the meeting on the First Steps Blog.

    I propose the following topics:
    1) How to encourage breastfeeding among teen mothers
    2) How child maltreatment is related to gender based domestic violence.
    Thanks and looking forward to hear the results from the meeting,

    1. Proteger a los niños de sus padres violentos a través de empleos de emergencia disponibles (una reserva laboral estatal calificada), creando centros masivos de acogida de infantes desprotegidos y de re-educación familiar en valores sociales (eliminación de escuelas públicas delegadas a terceros, centros de alimentación comunitaria, subsidios al desempleo, impuestos para la infancia desprotegida, eventos caritativos sin seguimiento de recursos).
    2. Conducir la escuela pública y privada hacia paradigmas no directivos, que contemplen la relevancia de los espacios para educar, aulas dotadas de libertad, no obligatorias y abiertas a la sociedad, posibilidad de desarrollar el talento humano en cada nación. Para esto la exigencia de un escalafón de profesionales fundamentado en logros de alcance social y productividad cultural.

    1. Alimentación en base a chilcano de peces del mundo.
    2. Amor y palabras dulces en la mañana, en la tarde y en la noche.
