Helping your kids develop a global worldview, part 1

Global worldview for kids

By Kristin Littrell, CFCA freelancer

I’m a mom to two young girls, and there’s a lot I don’t know about parenting. A lot.

But I do know that my husband and I long for our children to have a global worldview.

We want them to know from a young age that they live in a world bigger than their school, neighborhood or even country.

We hope they’ll see their life in relation to the world, not just in relation to the girl at school who has more trendy clothes or takes better vacations.

We believe a global worldview produces compassion, a celebration of diversity and a belief that we are all, regardless of location, created in God’s image.

We pray it will encourage our kids to make choices that benefit the good of others, sometimes even at the expense of their own desires.

Because our kids are still young, we’re just beginning this journey, but we’re doing a few things that we hope are planting the seeds of a compassionate global worldview in their hearts and minds.

I’d love to share them with you through a few upcoming blog posts. For now, let’s start by watching the Olympics with our kids.
