5 Things I Do to Empower My Multicultural Girls

I will just go ahead and say it – multiculturalism doesn’t protect you from being closed-minded. And in order to give your child the understanding of what it means to be a global citizen, you still need to work towards it. That’s why I want to share with you 5 Things I do to empower my multicultural girls.

1. Teach acceptance. I don’t mean accepting the mess that our world is going through. I don’t mean accepting that “people are not perfect”. I mean accepting for who you are: your appearance, your character, the way you talk and the way you walk.

2. Teach tolerance. I don’t mean tolerating bullies. I don’t mean tolerating gender inequality. I mean understanding and accepting the differences, yet being able to stand up for what you believe in.

3. Teaching peacefulness. I don’t mean standing by when something awful happens in front of your eyes. I don’t mean ignoring the world around you for the sake of your inner peace. I mean the ability of solving problems through peaceful means.

4. Teaching equality. I don’t mean erasing the importance of genders, cultures, races. I mean teaching that unity lies in diversity and that we are all created in harmony with one another.

5. Teaching love for humanity. I don’t mean giving into things or letting things slide because we love someone. I mean loving and accepting all people despite where they come from, what language they speak and what colour their skin is.

How do you empower your girls?
