Brazilian Children

Posted in Excerpts at 09:03 am by admin

            Brazilians love children.  Children are revered and hold an important status in the family.  I have never seen a baby sitter in Brazil.  Wealthy Brazilians will have a nanny to help with the children, but the families are always together on all occasions.  Even when an adult has a birthday celebration, it is assumed that everyone comes, including all children.  

Other differences in Brazil and America is when boarding an airplane, families with children get on first.  Here, Southwest Airlines had this practice, but now they changed it to allow children to board after group A.   In a restaurant the waiters will come to the children first to take their orders and after they are taken care of, the adults can place their order.  My three daughters always loved our trips to Brazil and they were very aware of these differences and wished it were the same at home.

It is not unusual to see teen agers, both boys and girls, paying attention to younger children, such as taking time to talk to them and playing with them for long periods of time, not because it was a duty, but it is their pleasure.  I’m always struck by these differences in our cultures.

            I’m sure this extra love and attention paid to children, makes them feel wanted and important.  Therefore you might think that Brazilian children would have very positive self images.  In most cases I feel they do. However, as they become teen agers, self consciousness, comparing themselves to others who they believe are better looking, or have better personalities, may create self-doubt.  But overall I think of the Brazilian teens as being self assured and with an overdose of self confidence and positive self images.

    In this awesome scheme of things you’ll secure a B- with regard to effort. Exactly where you actually lost us was in the specifics. You know, as the maxim goes, details make or break the argument.. And it could not be much more true here. Having said that, allow me reveal to you what exactly did give good results. Your writing is rather powerful which is most likely why I am taking an effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, although I can see a jumps in reason you come up with, I am not necessarily confident of how you appear to unite your details which inturn make the actual conclusion. For now I will, no doubt yield to your point but trust in the foreseeable future you link the dots much better.

  25. Fabiola Says:
