It was in 2007, when adopting their youngest child from Guatemala that Megan Shapiro-Ross and her husband, Eric realized they needed to enhance their children’s understanding of life in third world nations. Despite their best intentions and their success in touching upon many social topics, they felt they didn’t do enough to add to the growth of their children’s hearts and minds.
With all good intentions, their busy lives trumped the teaching of social issues. And on their own, their kids gravitated to online gaming and other diversions that in many cases carry little educational value.
How could Megan and Eric conveniently advance their own goals as parents, and also encourage their kids to feel the joy of making a difference in things they care about and issues they can relate to?
