In today’s episode of Raising Adults, Deana and Kira dive into how we as parents handle and cope with our kids being different from us.
“We don’t need a melting pot in this country, folks. We need a salad bowl. In a salad bowl, you put in the different things. You want the vegetables, the lettuce, the cucumbers, the onions, the green peppers to maintain their identity. You appreciate differences.” – Jane Elliot
