This article focuses on the moments of raising a child with down syndrome. Just want to note that I write only my own experience. Don’t know how many different opinions there are on this. A unified system of education no — that’s why so many discrepancies. Blame the system and to agree with another may not, so just present the facts.
Let me begin with the first days. I learned about the diagnosis of her son back to the family table (the phenotype) when I didn’t want to give it up. On — worse.

The basis of education in Japanese society is a tolerant and friendly attitude to a young child. Such permissiveness in childhood, adult Japanese citizens are law-abiding and ability to live by the interests of the team and company.
What Russians consider minor offences: beer behind the wheel, a conflict with a fight on holiday, journey on forbidding signal of a traffic light, – it is impossible for Japanese. To live is required by the rules. Break the rules (“losing face”). That in Japan, children are taught from early childhood, is the basis of education.
Amazing result? Actually, the education of the individual in Japanese society is constructed so that this result is a natural consequence of all stages of education, which is a child from birth Continue reading
When the parents noticed cough in infants, their attitude may be different. Someone is not paying attention to him, especially if it is not accompanied by a runny nose and fever. Others dramatize the situation and literally «heal» baby. None of these behaviours is not correct. The child stopped to cough, you must first find the cause and correct diagnosis, and then to begin treatment.
What is a cough and how it happens
Coughing is a reflex by which to clear the airway. Cough in infants, however, as an adult, looks like a sharp exhale. When the air escapes from the lungs with high speed, which helps open up the airway. Regarding the causes of cough are:
