Raising Good Humans

As parents we want to protect our kids. We want to keep them safe. The only issue with that is that we need them to see, listen and discuss what is going on in the world, how can they grow up to be good humans if they never leave their own bubble? In order to have those conversations as parents we need to do the work first. We need to see what is going on and check our facts and sources. We need to acknowledge that we don’t know what we don’t know. We need to dive deeper, ask questions and understand that we may never truly understand someone else’s journey but we can listen, advocate and stand up and be heard. It is not enough to be indifferent, we need to teach our kids that being a good human means our family supports other families. The only way to do that is by example.
