Young Giorgia Borg became an overnight sensation after performing on the popular TV show Britain’s Got Talent. Her successful participation was, however, not just a matter of luck but the result of years of singing lessons and stints at various other festivals.

Child interviews the girl and her parents who admit that only hard work pays off. The parents also stress that it is very important that caregivers listen to their children and do not force them to do anything or push them too hard to be the best at what they do.

This edition covers various topics, including media literacy, gender equality in STEM subjects and parental alienation. It highlights how chess is regaining popularity as a mind sport and the benefits of mindfulness, an ancient meditation practice.

The magazine also delves into a number of health-related subjects, tackling how vaccination is a not a parent’s choice but a child’s right and takes a look at recent WHO guidelines on physical activity for children aged one to five.
