Sowing Sensitivity: How to Teach Your Child to Be Socially Aware

Parents should do everything they can to raise kids who are self-aware and culturally sensitive. Children are exposed to media with prejudice and misinformation, especially when they’re growing up. Thus, deterring these intolerant concepts starts at home.

Do you know that it takes a village to raise a child? Here’s how parents, with help from communities and institutions outside the home, can help raise an upright child:


Enroll in a good charter school

Plenty of charter schools in Salt Lake City cater to a diverse student population. Thus, a charter school is a great avenue for children to learn about cultural awareness and equal opportunities.

Moreover, through controlled class sizes and tailored curriculums, charter schools give kids the opportunity to practice their independence and sense of accountability, skills they need to develop tolerance and responsibility.

Skinflint or Spendthrift?

Do you hold onto all of your money, waiting for those rainy days that never seem to come, or do you spend everything that you have and then scramble around whenever you need extra cash for AC repairs or rent? Your spending habits say a lot about your personality, but you probably don’t give them much thought. It’s time to determine if you’re a skinflint, spendthrift, or something in between. Then, you’ll know if you need to change your spending ways before your habits get out of control. It’s Not Just Money You’ve probably heard the saying, “It’s just money,” but that isn’t necessarily true. If you spend lavishly on others, you’re very generous, which is a good thing.

Before the automobile, before the Statue of Liberty, before the vast majority of contemporary colleges existed, the rising cost of higher education was shocking the American conscience: “Gentlemen have to pay for their sons in one year more than they spent themselves in the whole four years of their course,” The New York Times lamented in 1875.

Decadence was to blame, the writer argued: fancy student apartments, expensive meals, and “the mania for athletic sports.”
