What is culture? We seem to throw this word around but never really think about what it truly means and/or what it represents. If you look up the word Culture one of the definitions you will see is “development or improvement of the mind by education or training.- Dictionary.com This stuck out to me because this can be directly applied to exposing our children to different cultures and why it is important. Children are coming from a place of growth. They look at exposure to new cultures as a development process. Their little minds grow and expand. Culture for them is exactly development and/or improvement of their minds.

From participating in local cultural events, to cooking food from a different culture, reading books on different cultures or tap into activities at our child’s school all provide an opportunities for them to learn about different cultures. These are just a few examples but there are millions things we can do as parents to ensure that we raise children that are well rounded and accepting of all cultures.
