Gareth Higgins is on the #ReadingWithYourKids #Podcast to celebrate his book "Cory in the Seventh Story Place," Gareth tells us this book was inspired by conversations on 'us versus them' mentality and unnecessary conflicts. Rooted in Gareth's experiences in Northern Ireland, he and his co-author aimed to address dehumanization and marginalization, especially for bullied or marginalized children. In their conversation on the podcast Gareth and Jedlie highlight the impact of words, advocating against the belief that names can't hurt. They discuss how societal conflicts often stem from a lack of belonging and fairness rather than just ideological differences. They touch upon the Northern Ireland conflict, emphasizing the importance of dialogue, non-violence, and understanding. Both Gareth and Jedlie agree that Love, to them, means extending oneself for others' sake, promoting courage, selflessness, and building a bigger table without harming anyone. They stress the need to start conversations about love and belonging with kids, challenging the negative narratives they might encounter elsewhere. Gareth's book aims to inspire conversations about building a better world, extending beyond childhood lessons, and becoming the goal of societal interactions. Gareth and Jed encourage fostering understanding, collaboration, and a shared responsibility to create a more inclusive and empathetic society.
