Sheltering Arms is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. Benefits of celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month don't stop with Hispanic children. Exposing children of any background to other cultures and heritages has enormous benefits for them, turning them into mini global citizens. Not only does raising your children to be globally aware build essential tools like critical thinking and problem solving, it also helps them foster a deep understanding of the challenges of our world, promotes empathy, and builds communication skills.
