Eve and Darren believe that compassion arises from the realization that there are people in the world different from them. So, from their two children’s earliest years, they exposed their kids to as much , racial, religious, age and socioeconomic diversity as possible.
They live in a large and diverse city in a neighborhood of mixed ethnicity and explore every nook and cranny of the urban landscape, even poor areas in which they are a bit uncomfortable. Eve and Darren expose their children to every kind of international cuisine they can find (though, admittedly, every taste isn’t always welcomed). They read books to their children that show them about other peoples, cultures, and religions. Once their children were old enough, the family took trips to India, China, Russia, and Africa.
