With globalisation and increasing interaction between people from diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds, how do we foster intercultural understanding and respect in our children? The current wave of globalisation is reinventing many cities and households, making them more diverse than in the past.
Kids learn symbolic languages (painting drawing, playing with play dough…) to express themselves and discover better their own personality. Learning another language is essential for our children who will be working in a multi-cultural multi lingual world.
Modern families are so unique and diverse. They bring together, in one household, cultural perspectives, notions, traditions, heritage and sometimes genetic makeup from different parts of the world. We have often heard of the term ‘third culture’ children or children who have spent a large part or all of their growing up years outside of their parents’ culture and country.
