Families Around the World – MKB Instagram Blog Hop!

Families Around the World: MKB Instagram Blog Hop!We here at Multicultural Kid Blogs are in party mode! We are celebrating our second anniversary. We are so thrilled that our community has grown to include bloggers and families from all over the world! These last two years have given us opportunities to learn from each other, support each other and help us in our mission:  raising world citizens, through arts, activities, crafts, food, language, and love. 

Being a part of this group for me is very special. I love hearing how parents from all over the world nurture and care for their children… while our methods might be different depending on where we are, one thing remains true… all roads lead to the same place: we all want healthy, happy children. We all want to keep our children safe and give them a good future.

So to celebrate the beauty in our diversity, we are hosting an Instagram Blog Hop to celebrate Families around the World.

Personally, I’m super excited because I LOVE photography and I love INSTAGRAM. Capturing moments through photography is something that I’ve always been a fan of, even since before we had digital equipment or smart phones. I think I owe this to my mother, who took many pictures of us growing up, and who also shared many pictures of her youth with us. Pictures allow us to share with our little ones special moments in time. They can evoke all sorts of emotions and they can transport us to a special time and place. They help us remember loved ones and keep traditions alive.  It’s true what they say, a picture is a thousand words.

A family is the basic building block of our society. A family is the place where children learn to interact with the world around them. Families may be big or small, depending on cultural or religious traditions, or where you live…. but do you know what binds families together? That all families, whatever their size, color of skin, religion, ethnicity, location, or composition usually have one thing in common: they are made up of loving people who may disagree, and not want to share their toys, and argue at times, but families are full of love.

  1. Bonjour – I have found you via the lovely Phoebe at Lou Messugo and will sit down and have a good read of some earlier blog posts a bit later. We are an English couple who now live in Normandy, France with our two bilingual boys. They are pretty fluent … we are not! I suspect we adults will always stay English at heart but we are watching with interest to see what culture the boys lean more towards.

    I don’t do Instagram as I still live in the dark ages and don’t have a smart phone (known as “strokey phones” in our house house!) …. however I have found an article that says you can access and use instragram from a PC by downloading a BlueStacks App Player. I will investigate!

  2. It’s fantastic looking through instagram seeing how different families live around the world. I love waking up and seeing what the Australian’s have been up to, during the morning the rest of the UK gets on line and then in the evening the US comes through the feed sharing everyday family life.
