How do you bring the world to your child and bring your child to the world?
“Taking the time to make sense of how to navigate our global community and what it means to be a citizen of the wider world can be one of the most meaningful investments we make in raising up this generation of children. It doesn’t have to be complicated, but it just takes some mindful effort.”
- Homa Sabet Tavangar, Author of Growing up Global
