As a Mom it is important to me that my kids know that they have the power to pick what they want to make of their life. I teach them as often as I can that they have the power to make the world a better place by spreading love and kindness vs being mean to others. I am always so proud of them when one of them comes home telling me about how they helped a friend of theirs, how they shared their lunch with a kid who didn’t have one or come up with an idea to help those in need. This past weekend I was at a Birthday party with Alyssa, and the one little girls moms came up to me and told me that Logan is in their older daughter’s class and that when kids were picking on her for having 2 moms he stood up for her. They told me it made a big difference in their daughter handling the comments other kids were making because another child stood up for her. This is something that is important for me to see my kids do and know that they understand that it is important for them to be kind, be helpful, be thoughtful and that they can make a difference in the world.
I am really excited about the Marvel’s CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR - Girls Reforming the Future Challenge, it is a great way to get girls to see just how powerful they can be and how they can do anything they put their minds to! Marvel is having this challenge to engage young women to further the Avengers’ goal of making the world a better place.
