Given the large number of children who live in condominiums, it is important to provide them with knowledge that enables them to understand, safety, integrate and live well in the space they inhabit.
It is therefore essential to make children aware of the understanding and acceptance of cultural differences, as well as the different habits and interests of the various families living in their building – which will arouse solidarity, help and respect for their neighbors.
It will then be helpful to teach children that there are rules that promote good living among all – some of these rules being mandatory by law and others decided by the owners. These rules result in rights and duties that assist all owners, so that when they are explained to the young, they allow children to realize that they too play an active role in safeguarding the space in which they live (such as ensure the cleanliness and good use of common spaces and equipment, respect the silence and rest of the neighbors).
As safety is a major issue, especially with regard to rules that help prevent accidents, it is essential to teach children to identify hazardous situations and what to do if such situations occur when there is no adult nearby (eg : Do not play with electric wires – even if they are visible, stay away from broken glass, never touch liquids, detergents and tools they may find in common areas, where they should go in a fire, etc.).
In short, instilling a sense of life in co-ownership allows children to develop skills that enhance the quality of their interpersonal relationships, making them feel that the condominium belongs to them and motivating them to become exemplary co-owners in adults.
