Sue’s Tuppence Worth

A thought-provoking read.

How do children slip from preference to prejudice?

Two words: parental silence.

We don’t talk about race and difference enough.

Parents of colour may wish to avoid painful discussions—but then they don’t prepare their children for handling racist comments that may come their way.

White parents often stay mum because they fear they’ll say something offensive.

Thanks to this misguided censorship, kids think race is a loaded subject and that translates to “something bad.”

And it doesn’t take too many steps to go from bad to biased.

 

This week, I’d like you to PAUSE TO PONDER…

How do you address race and difference in your family?
