  More on why a global community of parents          


A global presence

   More and more global entities are forming and moving to affect the planet's future, the future our  children will live in. Nobel peace prize winner Shimon Peres recently said, "Today the greatest organizations are firms, serving an international economy." Other organizations can be formed to act globally but for other missions. Parents should also have an international presence, a means to improve things for the  world's children. Global corporations affect the market, the exchange of goods and services.  World Parent can affect the lives of the living breathing men, women and children of the next generations.



A lesson from the elders 

The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) was formed in 1958 and has grown into an organization with 37 million members and wields considerable power.  It certainly could be said that without that representation the needs and wishes of America's elders would not have been addressed and met to the extent they have been. Indeed, The organization now has a host of programs and benefits for their members including a plan for international collaboration on means of enriching the lives of seniors.  As seniors have benefited from an organization that represents and works for them so too can children benefit in similar kind from a community of parents.  Seniors can vote and be part of many organizations that work for change. A child cannot.  Children cannot join organizations nor can they fully understand the forces at work that mold the environment they live in nor the future they will live in.  They need our full representation.


Said the little boy, "Sometimes I drop my spoon." Said the old man, "I do that too." The little boy whispered, "I wet my pants." "I do that too," laughed the old man." Said the little boy, "I often cry." The old man nodded, "So do I." "But worst of all," said the boy, "it seems Grown-ups don't pay attention to me." And he felt the warmth of a wrinkled old hand. "I know what you mean," said the old man.~ Shel Silverstein
