July/August 2022Vol. 23, No. 6Parent Guide Offers Tips for Talking With Children About Race
Children begin very early in life taking in spoken and unspoken messages about race; it permeates nearly every aspect of life—in the books read to them and those they read, the movies they watch, the music they listen to, the conversations around them, and the relationships and interactions they observe. A resource developed by EmbraceRace seeks to equip parents and caregivers with useful tips they can use to help guide and shape their child's education and perception of race.
16 Ways to Help Children Become Thoughtful, Informed, and BRAVE About Race is a colorful four-page guide that presents tips organized into the following four sections:
- Starting early. The earlier, the better.
- Let your child see you do your own work.
- Learn about others and yourself.
