It's Just For Fun Friday! On JFFF, we review items and activities that you can do with your kids in order to increase their cultural competence and diversity awareness.
This week is a bit of a departure from the norm. We are not reviewing an item, instead we are talking about an upcoming holiday: Mother's Day! I like that we are trying something new here. We're using the holiday to talk about differences around the world and differences between different types of families. Not everyone celebrates Mother's Day in the same way. Not everyone even celebrates Mother's Day! So often, what we think of as typical or normal is anything but. In American culture, it's typical to bring mom flowers and go out for brunch. Is this the same for others? Use this holiday to learn something new with your kids!
After you watch the video, print out the page below for a quick reference guide on how to think and talk about Mother's Day with your kids to develop diversity awareness.
How do you celebrate Mother's Day (if at all)? Is there anything new and interesting that you want to try to help celebrate? Leave a comment below.
Most of all enjoy the video. And don't forget to HAVE FUN!
Check back next week for another Just For Fun Friday!
