If it takes a village to raise a child, why are we raising today’s children in vacuums
Increasingly today’s children are isolated, over-protected and coddled. Why is this happening and why should you care?
Children are our future, and we need kids who are ready to take over the reins of power. They need to be creative, good problem-solvers in a quickly changing world, able to assess reasonable risk-taking ventures and have a good sense of their strengths and weaknesses.
Kids who are raised in vacuums will not be ready for adulthood. They need you. Whether you are a parent, extended family member, friend or neighbour; our kids need to be connected to a supportive and child-friendly community.
Using stories and example Kathy will talk about how we all need to accountable to our kids and welcome them as part of their and our community.
