Raising children in a culture that is not your own can be difficult, and not just for you; the children also have matters they must work on on how to balance their childhood with those of the children around them. It’s hard to fit in, and still keep your own identity. One way Erik has found to do this is by wearing mismatched socks and being totally okay with it, even when teased by his friends. He certainly is able to feel confident in his own decisions at a young age, which is terrific! Read on for the link to the article to read more about Erik and to link up your multicultural posts in the linky.

The Mismatched Socks And The Multicultural Child:
My favourite post from last month’s linky was this post by Maltamom, and her story about her son, Erik, who is fine marching to the beat of his own drum by wearing mismatched socks, regardless of what his friends say. He knows what he likes, and is okay with it, he doesn’t need to follow the crowd.
Thank you for linking-up, and we can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to!
