  • Babysitter – Service

    Sep 17, 12 • Admin • Services, TopicsNo CommentsRead More »

    Babysitting is a service of mutual benefit for all persons involved: parents gain privacy, kids learn to be treated / educated by third persons, young adults practice education and leadership. For students, babysitting often also is the first job that can be practiced without specific knowledge, during leisure time (mostly at night) and without administrative and/or legal hurdles. The young adults not only experience how exhausting (physically and mentally) work can be and to value the effort of earning some pocket money, but also to be punctual, to be committed, to get their free time planned and organized. They also learn – probably for the first time – what education means, in general, for the children and for themselves. They suddenly find themselves “on the other side of the wall” and may understand better the way their own parents used/use to treat them and how hard it can be to take decisions and to stay firm. Babysitting also teachs the young adults to take responsability, both for others and for themselves. The questioning by the small kids and conversation/confrontation with them forces them to define their own way of being, thinking and dealing with different subjects. They have to understand that – although only temporarily and for a short period – they step into the role of “idols”, representing the kids’ parents and calling for respect and obedience; they find themselves observed,

  • TANDEM: Brazilian bi-national couples in Brasilia

    Talking about a TANDEM (bike) and what it means for two persons handling it, the following associations come into my mind:  One of the characteristics of the Brazilian society is its multi-nationality, – which explains to me why Brazilians are so tolerant, curious and open-minded when dealing with different traditions, religions and ways of living. The huge variety of nationalities in Brazil is the result of immigration processes in the past on the one hand, and the consequences of the mobility of today’s world-citizens and the opening of societies on the other hand. So far, bi-national couples (Brazilian / non-Brazilian) are a constituent part of the modern Brazilian society and reflect what happens all over the world. Since travelling, studying or working nearly without geographical limitations (cross-border) enable or sometimes exceed a high mobility and flexibility, bi-national couples are the smallest functional unit of an international integration process. Independently where these couples met – or in Brazil or abroad – they decided to settle down in Brasilia. One can imagine that this mind-making process and decision was / is the first hard test of a partnership. Moving to Brasilia, naturally, has more consequences for the non-Brazilian partner, both with regard to private and professional life.   The word and image of a „TANDEM“ symbolizes what it means to form a bi-national couple and what is needed to overcome the hurdles
