Many of us have multiple racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds in our families. How do we share these rich cultural traditions with our kids while also enjoying the mainstream observations and celebrations of day-to-day American life? In Episode 159 of the Edit Your Life podcast, we respond to a listener’s question by sharing our own thoughts and experiences about growing up—and now parenting—in multicultural families. We talk about the gifts and complexities of identity, and then go on to share simple ways to increase cultural awareness in everyday life.
