Heather, thanks for your support and that’s a wonderful add-on. Raising kids with a social awareness never dawned on me until friends of mine had kids and I asked them how did their kids turn out so well. Their answer: “we try to teach them about standing up for those who may not have as much as they do. We want them to know about compassion.”

So you know what, while I have no experience with raising kids, I find it comforting that there are those who make instilling positive beliefs in their kids a priority.
