I'm a cartoon fan and I've watched almost all of them with my children. Going to the cinema to see "Big Hero 6" I didn't expect anything spectacular. Just another cartoon for children. I was hoping that it would be interesting enough that a nap wouldn't be more attractive than the moving pictures. The film was a nice surprise for me and I don't know how 100 minutes passed away. This movie has everything I expect from the cinema: amazing colourful heroes, funny dialogue, action-packed story, fantastic graphics, emotions and a positive message.
Everyone has secrets; issues which shouldn't see the light of day. We can have secrets at any age. We confide first in our mothers and then we share our secrets with friends. In adult life we have situations in which our secrets overwhelm us, and sometimes they are not fit to be shared with anybody.
My days are getting shorter. I realized this recently when it emerged that despite my best efforts I don't manage to get everything done. I constantly have to turn away from one thing in order to do something else. But maybe this didn't happen by itself, because the only thing that happens by itself is chaos. Maybe somebody stole these hours from me. But why couldn't he have taken the hours when I do the ironing, which I hate? Why did he have to take the time when my children are sleeping, when I decided that I'm not going to do anything else today and finally I have time for myself?
From childhood we are constantly learning something: walking, writing, driving... Everywhere we are swamped with instructions which we need to follow. Unfortunately, I can't find an instruction manual anywhere for the most important situation: How to bring up a child to be a clever and good adult without ruining their personality.
Does the child’s request “Lets go to the cinema” make you want to escape to the other side of the city, and does the sight of another cartoon hero cause you to scratch nervously? Diagnosis? Cartoon allergy. Luckily I do not have this problem. Quite the contrary: if I miss a really interesting movie for kids at the cinema I try to catch up in another (legal) way. Thanks to this approach, I am up to date with all the heroes my kids talk about, and I am able to clarify all particularly difficult situations which little brains do not understand. We laugh together, relive adventures and recall dialogues.
