We start off this very multinational week in New York with Allison Charleston, whose family line runs high on girls and low on boys. She tells us about how the behaviour of her son – the only boy in her family – fascinates and amuses her.
On Tuesday, we head north of the border to Canada, to hear from Multitasking Mumma. Do you and your partner have similar parenting styles, or do you have a good-cop-bad-cop kind of setup? This mom tells us what it was like for her growing up, and the challenges faced by many parents today.
Tuesday at 5pm, the latest post in our Human Rights column will post from international human rights lawyer, Jennifer Prestholdt, who is in Kathmandu, Nepal this week. Jennifer write an incredibly informative post about the education of girls around the globe. Come see the places she takes us to!
On Wednesday, we go to the exotic land of Brazil, where Eco Ziva talks about a sore point for many of us moms: how do we get our kids to eat the right kinds of foods. This mom has a simple solution – and so far, it seems to be working!
On Thursday, we are back in Canada with Kirsten Doyle. Being a mom is busy. Sometimes there is not a moment to spare, between working, parenting, and taking care of household responsibilities. Kirsten tells us how she manages to do all of this and go for regular runs.
On Friday, we head off to India, where The Alchemist talks about some discriminatory laws that she would like to see abolished. Many of us cannot imagine a society in which your educational and employment opportunities depend not on hard work or ability, but on religion or caste. Come read about this, and about the dreams that this mom has for her child.
On Saturday, check out the Saturday Sidebar with Eva Fannon, where the World Moms give their thoughts on an important topic, and chime in with your answers to the week’s question!
