"World Citizen" Defined

To me, a world citizen is someone who has a firm grasp of the breadth, depth and true diversity of the world around them and strives to seize any and all available opportunities to make a true impact on the global community.

As parents, we can serve as our children's tour guides and give them amazing, diverse experiences that will help them grow and thrive - no matter how the world evolves. Whether your travels take you to far and distant lands or you never leave the Midwest, there are vast opportunities to expose our children to the world - its cultures, people and communities. It's all about finding them, embracing them, learning from them - and taking a global view that will help you cultivate your unique viewpoint of world and your place within it.

Here's to raising world citizens!
