Outdoor Education is a relatively new concept in the romanian educational context. In this society where education is trying hard to carve a path for students to step towards a goal that each one dreams, a path on which unnecessary information vanish, where the stress must be in normal limito, outdoor education appears to offer us a reminder for the return to nature in a recreational learning. We need nature just as nature needs us, humans.
Kids needs to learn this!

The paper "Music therapy in the mitigation of preschoolers' learning difficulties" outlines a bunch of different music therapy exercises and techniques that were adapted for 5-6 years old kindergartners.
The goal of exposing level II preschol children to this music therapy program was mainly to achieve a desired gradual mitigation of their learning difficulties and health problems, at the same time developing their love for music and educating their aesthetic taste.
After identifying preschool children with learning disabilities and pinning down their difficulties, we performed the exercises and techniques as a weekly unit among all the kindergarten activities planned for the second semester.
The final part of the paper highlights the effects we noticed during and upon completion of the whole music therapy program.

Key words: music therapy, learning difficulties, preschool, tibetan bowls, chakras and musical notes.

Therapeutic Activity "Shameful Bunny"

Prof. psiholog Eugenia Dobromir
Grăd. cu P.N. "Perluţele Mării", Constanţa

The purpose of the activity "The shameful bunny" is that of preventing or removing the shame by promoting a rational/ healthy way of thinking. Those who deal with the education of children, young people should be receptive to the changes imposed by the evolution of society, to respond to the responsibilities imposed by the changes that occur in the organization of learning styles. Most experts in the field know that the process of education requires a change in the requirements for the profession of educator. You can not understand the individuals without considering the community that has shaped and continually reshapes them, it is impossible to understand the society without regard to the personality profile of its members. And the most social and reflexive part of the personality is the self. You can know a child, considering the three pillars of self‑esteem:
    • confidence;
    • self-concept;
    • self-love.

Key words: Self-esteem, shame, feelings, preschoolers.
