Social exclusion is encouraged from poor socialization skills and low self-esteem, which are formed in the first years of life, during communication between children and their parents. Traditionally this interaction was provided by songs and games, used in everyday life. Now this everyday life with games and this part of children's development is dissapeared. We offer an innovative approach for reduction of social exclusion. Our goal is to ensure more positive development of the next generation. To achieve that, we will educate parents about children's growth, and teach the traditional ways, how to use the knowledge in everyday life. 15 families from Lādezers will take a part in 2 camps and 30 workshops, where songs about family will be learned and explored, and recorded (1000 CD copies). 9 schools in Limbaži district will have course of lectures (27 lectures). A medical officer will give knowledge about the development of children, and folklorists will show, how to involve it in family daily life.
