Prof. Dr. Bengi Semerci attended the “Kız Gibi Denemeye Devam Et” Panel, which was organized within the Kristal Elma 2017

Kristal Elma Festival’s topic was societal gender equality. Semerci, who attended the panel at the 5th of October, which was moderated by Ayşe Arman, told that societal teachings cause this inequality between genders, but with consciousness-raising the gap could be closed. Semerci, who told girls and boys get separated by their job orientations while they grow up, said even so girls count more in top 10 graduation numbers. She said that this isn’t just women’s responsibility but a problem of humanity, thus, males are equally responsible.

MY CHILD IS GROWING UP! DOES ADOLESCENCE REALLY A PROBLEM?

Even though most of the time we say “Oh if I were young again!” the concern that our children will become adolescents might be worrying because of its symptoms. On the one hand adolescents try to keep pace with the big and fast change they are in, while they are thinking why their parents cannot understand them. Living with an adolescent is also difficult. Your child who you can control by then, who you know little about what you are going to do, has gone, another child who is suspected of your love, acting like an enemy, prefers his friends to you andRead More…

IS IT POSSIBLE TO TREAT CHILDREN WITH PLAY?

The idea of “play” is usually conceived as the opposite of the concept of “work” and therefore it makes frivolous, insignificant and casual associations in one’s mind.  People find it “childish” and pay no attention.  This is because plays are for children and they eventually grow out of this unnecessary habit once they become adults… When you see it this way you may find it a bit far fetched to hear that play -something that has no value from the adult’s perspective- has actually a great deal of significance for humanity just as that of language, culture and technology.  NotRead More…

EFFECTS OF SMALL TOUCHES ON SELF CONFIDENCE

Self confidence is about being comfortable in one’s own skin and finding one’s self valuable and competent enough.  A healthy self perception ensures the establishment of secure relationships and savoring each and every aspect of life.  Clinging to life and being enthusiastic about it, creating and maintaining identities and goals and sustaining trust in relationships are all possible with a solid self perception.   People’s problem solving skills improve and they learn to cope with problems in a more efficient way.  Lack of self confidence, however, keeps a person from enjoying life by bringing on the thoughts and feelings of insecurity,Read More…

PARENTAL CHEATING FROM THE CHILD’S PERSPECTIVE

Cheating in families with children does not merely consist of hiding a lover from the spouse or telling lies.   When spouses cheat on each other they actually cheat on the entire family.    From a child’s perspective, being a family means the separation and protection of the kernel that is made up of parents and siblings from the rest of the people out there by dint of the same surname.    A child only feels safe and comfortable in a family when he/she knows that his/her parents accompany each other as a team and keep him/her safe along with his/her siblings. Read More…
