We´ve created spaces for the kids to play and enjoy different educational games.
This is where the evil starts! hahahahaha .... José has been learning to behave here.
Even the new tía Maribel was playing our games with the kids!
When they are occupied with meaningful activities, they are so good!
Antony and Angelo dragged me all around to play puzzles.
Even MariLuz is a fan of puzzles now!
Two little lovers!
Among a crazy guy and another manipulative gal volunteers fiasco, Finally came some comfort......
It has been a problem with the Casa San Antonio, where the tías cannot manage very well the boys of 8-12 years old. For one thing, there were not enough tías and too many boys. And boys are always naughtier and more physical. On top of that, some of them had delinquent backgrounds and even psychiatric issues, what could one expect not to have problems?! Even when I visited them, being a professional, I felt hopeless and helpless. Tía Maria Castillo, who is a fantastic tía with a maternal nature that we all love. She once said that, ¨it´s a pity because you can´t work with these children with love and care. They don´t seem to understand. All they are used to is being treated like animals, and it´s the only way to go.¨
