Growing Up Global: Raising Children to Be At Home in the World – Book Summary

Introduction

  • The purpose of the book is to offer practical steps for parents to incorporate the concept of international awareness and world citizenship as part of their family values. It’s not about creating on amalgam of the world’s cultures. It deals with the complex process of knowing one’s self while appreciating others. This can help today’s children and tomorrow’s leaders acquire a sense of confidence as they approach the difficult, often uncomfortable questions facing the world. A proactive mindset can help you connect with people, circumstances, and challenges facing other human beings. You can do this even if you don’t have direct links to disparate cultures. Homa uses the metaphor of making a new friend to organize the book. Hands-on activities for kids and background for adults helps build empathy and respect.
