We strive to raise our children in an inclusive community, but do our children know how to actively ‘include’ on an everyday basis? Can they recognize opportunities to be mindful about who is being engaged and how? Can they recognize when a situation requires ‘upstanding’? Do they know what it means to be a ‘good’ friend?
