Tolerance and Diversity
The world has always been diverse, but never before has diversity been such a pressing, everyday issue. Your kids probably grew up with children of different races, cultures, religions, and backgrounds, wherever it is you live. The many challenges of such a diverse world affect teenagers on a daily basis. Images of terrorism, school shootings, extremist groups, street violence, and hate crimes are in the headlines everyday. Especially, if your children are older, becoming aware of the real issues behind the headlines is the first step in becoming part of the solution. Tolerance today is not an optional character trait; it’s an essential life skill.
