Tools to talk to kids about race relations
Here are a few links to help you discuss race relations with your children. Remember to limit what smaller children are exposed to on the news and social media. Some information is not appropriate for all ages and can frighten children or create negative reactions. Open and honest discussions that are age appropriate can lead to understanding and acceptance of people's differences. If you need more guidance, consider joining an Active Parenting workshop when they resume, learn more about our workshops here.
