Mother’s Day can be an opportunity for recognizing the diversity of family structures. Some children have a mother and a father, others may have two moms, two dads, a single mom or dad, grandparents raising them, divorced parents or a whole range of other family configurations.  Inclusive celebrations can serve as an important learning experience by providing opportunities to discuss and acknowledge the many kinds of families in our communities.

How do we incorporate this wisdom into our every day lives?
