If there’s one thing the past year has taught us, it’s that the world and society are changing fast. Whether it’s politics, climate change, new technology or economic trends it’s hard to predict the future or know how to best prepare our families.
One thing we can say confidently - our kids need different skills and preparation for their future than we had. The summer is a great opportunity to take stock, have a break and inspire yourself with new interests and skills.
