What can I do?
In light of recent events, many parents find themselves wondering what they can do to have the conversation regarding race with their children. Some children might be too young to understand what is going on at this time, but some ARE old enough and are maybe asking some hard questions. So how do you explain race, racism, social injustice, etc. to a child? It’s hard enough for us to understand as adults! I’ve compiled a list of social media accounts that list books and resources to help parents explain these potentially difficult topics with their children. Even if your children are not asking the questions, no child is too young to be read to.
