"How do I raise a child with a worldly view?"

"How do I protect my child from the harsh realities of the world?"

Carolyn and I discuss the deeper meaning behind the word "citizenship." She shares her experience of finding a sense of belongingness as a world traveler and holder of multiple passports. She talks about the process of inquiry she does with her students to understand attitudes, identities, and biases. We discuss the power of stories and share tips on how we can help ourselves and our children build citizenship starting within our neighborhoods.
