Adarna House’s ‘stARTing Conversations’ Explains Social Issues to Children at Ayala Museum
To underestimate a child’s ability to think deeper just because they are young– or because they stand taller than waist level by an inch– can be a mistake we are making as adults. Just the same, it is never too late to introduce them to issues that may be far taller than they are, if only to explain them in a language they can fully understand.
