There is still a time to understand animal's words

In what ways is your home town unique from other places you've lived or traveled?

It's classic Balcan and primitive somewhere, and very modern, even luxurious in some families.
The one thing is the most present: the big place for investing in production in every level of industry, with very hospitable and scared people for their future.

What do your kids love most about living in the European Union?

Freedom to have ''things'' that in Macedonia can not effort, or if they wanted, their parents must sacriface something (soul peace, home, car, or even the worst - the life).
The common life is not a gift only for our kids, we are granted with good food, helathy living, green everywhere, but we need the strong, stronger and strongest in the world for our economy.

What outdoor activity do you enjoy doing most with your kids?

I love skiing, walking and talking with in winter.
In our four season we are having fun.
The most of all is learning all sport activities.

How can you help a child who has trouble making friends?

Because she/he wants to be a winner, the best. The child is educated before school, before street games at home from their parents to follow high standards of behaviour and treatment. Town, Village, State is not a property and private. Well-intended should be understanding and not to claim. Mouth is for talking constructive stories. The world is saving the energy with thinking and we should not teach our children to spending unapropriate on unimportant things. You can help somebody just with shuting your mouth and finally you will have a friend.

From essential strokes to helpful tips for before and after swimming, what do you think kids should know about swimming and water safety?

Every swimming school or practice should have a program ex. small school, grande progressive school etc. If we have close swimm pool in town children should have swim classes in the primary or secondary school. But the best tip: that the parent shoul know and I learn from my expirience are: babies can start with swim teaching with 5 mounths old, never leting child without your attention even on 5 min. and even in 10 cm deep when you are in your own pool, you shoul ask for a professional team when you enter in some swimming school and ask for info all about swimming program, condition and amking ready before and after training.

What are some fun activities to put on a summer "bucket list" for your kids? Please link to a picture if you have one.

The Fact Of The Week The effects of laws: The judges who apply the law of watching, indicate diferent distances to be maintained for ''monsters'' in respect of their victims. The Right Distance: How many feet away from us must remain a suitor to not become too obrusive: 50, 100 or 500m? Depends on the case. Is there a correct measurement in every circumstance? In love, or in the car? And with the former? For me, the cup of milk should be on special placemat 15cm from my stomach. In this way I can see exactly what happens to the milk foam. The shirts must have long sleeves and cuff should be touching the thumb. What is stylish sleeve on forearm? - He spends all his time trying to pull it down through the sleeve of his jacket. The people in the elevator should keep a minimum distance of 20 cm from each other. And for cars, I can't stand those who make'' trains'' on the highway, because there is a fair measure of things, feelings and actions: >>Love, we'll always be together, right?; Always-always, neighbors and neighbors<
