So here’s the story: I (April) have never been anywhere. I’ve never toured Europe, I’ve never built a well in a third-world country (though I want to), and I’ve never eaten in a restaurant that didn’t have an English menu.
So how do I raise children who feel at home in the world? How do I prepare my children to work and serve in a global society? How do I create a home full of rich traditions, fun (and educational) discussions, and exciting new experiences that build character and compassion?
I lucked out big-time when I met Homa Tavangar, the author of Growing Up Global: Raising Children to Be At Home in the World.
This lady knows her stuff. She has three children of her own, and she has spent years putting together simple, doable ideas that any family–on any budget–can implement into their homes.
Seriously, I was so excited about this podcast that I could hardly sleep the night before, and our family has been benefiting from Homa’s wisdom ever since.
Want to listen in on our conversation? Want to help your children connect genuinely with people and appreciate the beauty of other cultures?
You’ll love the results, and you’ll be amazed at how your own family bonds are strengthened along the way.
If you’d like to visit Homa’s fabulous website, it’s called Growing Up Global.
We’ve also put together a full Power of Moms Book Summary.
