My name is Sara, and I am the mother of Anna, a 5-year-old girl. We started attending the Villaggio per Crescere, a few months ago. It is a very nice initiative, which my daughter enjoys to the point that it is now a weekly ritual. It has also become an important moment for our parent-child relationship.
Often what is missing in our lives is the quality time to spend with our children, and the centre allows you to leave your problems at the door, thus giving your child your complete attention. Another important thing is the moment of sharing. As soon as we get home, in fact, my daughter shows her dad what we did together, or she shows it to me, depending on which parent accompanied her, thus creating a moment of dialogue where we talk and recount the time spent together.
For me as a mother, it is a wonderful initiative because it allows me to be with other people, other adults, whereas our life as parents before the centre was often very solitary. With this method, on the other hand, friendships in the neighbourhood can grow: we help each other more, we spend more time together, and we feel less lonely. The same goes for our boys and girls, who are often only children. Here, we create a network, a village in fact, to be all together.
