The impact of this is apparent on parents and children. The adage “it takes a village to raise a child” is absolutely still true. But somewhere along the way, we’ve lost the “village” we need to raise kids in nurturing, creative, and safe ways. And as a result, families are missing out on crucial learning experiences and much-needed support systems. In the end, many parents feel isolated and alone in their struggles, and kids don’t have the opportunity to engage with a diverse group of people and personalities.
