Choose Your Adventure

This November we take responsibility to care for each other.

As caregivers (or just regular humans), we’re tight on time and resources. We have a responsibility to heal the world, but we can only do so much while juggling advocacy and dishes.

Take solace in the knowledge that these discussions and explorations we do together inspire our kids to work toward a better world. Raising kids to examine their internal bias and generational impact – that is next-level action.

The exhaustion, the hardship, the tedious chores and aching muscles, that IS life. That’s a gift we get to experience. 

If you only have time to dig into one issue this month – you can still meet your kids where they’re at and show them that they can come to you with hard questions and difficult decisions about anything.

As always, no one expects you to tackle everything below. Just keep these issues on your radar, and keep asking your kids (and yourself) – what responsibility do we have to care for each other?

As always, I super-duper appreciate you, your tenacious curiosity, and your push for inclusion and justice <3

With you,

Ashia R.
