Whilst living in London we were surrounded by a rich variety of different cultures, and we encountered these cultural influences such as people, food, and music, on a daily basis. Where we now are in rural France we have to dig a little deeper and look a little harder to find the same cultural influences...but they are there...and we know the importance of highlighting them to our two young boys.
our garden is flourishing with fruit, vegetables, and flowers that we planted earlier in the year. I believe nurturing the idea of global citizenship within our children is similiar to that of nurturing a plant. We plant seeds, water them, weed around them, support them, and soon will start to reap the rewards of the harvest. Children are often open to all sorts of thoughts and ideas. As their young minds form their own views about the world around them, with a little guidence you can help them discover what it is to be part of a wider community.
