"The 10th Days of Early Attention point out the importance of games for the children's physical and mental health "

Our society is forgetting the value of games as something that is essential in the children's development, which is worrisome. We must fight to get some time back for children to play, without screens, because their physical and mental health depends on it'', explains Christelle Cuenot, children's occupational therapist and speaker during the 10th Days of Early Attention that took place in Fuerteventura in October.

With ten editions, this event has become a meeting and training venue for families and professionals who work with children. ''This is a new opportunity to keep on improving our training to provide answers to children's necessities'', pointed out the Cabildo's President, Marcial Morales, who explained how the thinker Francesco Tonucci makes reference to the necessity of playing as something that is obvious and is being forgotten. The president of the Cabildo also announced that in February 2019, in the context of the project called ''Fuerteventura Isla Amiga de la Infancia y la Adolescencia'' (Fuerteventura a Friendly Island for Children and Teenagers), the prestigious Italian educational psychologist would come back to the island. With the slogan ''Playing is something very serious, games during childhood'', the 10th days of Early Attention took place in the Island's Youth Centre in Puerto del Rosario. Through a theory and practical workshop, participants learned about the complexity of games, such as providing challenges in their development to typical children, the different theories about the games and their influence and potential for a good and healthy development of children's personalities.
