Talking to Kids About Racism

posted by:

How do we raise our children to treat others fairly when they see racial injustice? What are the pros and cons of talking openly about race and racial injustice with our children? What is the price of silence? Researchers have found that to be effective, conversations about race must be explicit, and your messages must be put in unmistakable terms that children understand.
In this program, we’ll explore the following areas that provide a foundation to start talking with your children about race:
1. Examine your own beliefs and prejudices
2. Acknowledge privilege
3. Recognize stereotypes
4. Commit to talking with children about racial prejudice
5. Look for teachable moment in everyday life
Two free virtual zoom sessions will be provided on Tuesday, October 27:
Option 1: 11:30 p.m. – 12:30 p.m.…/talking-to-kids-about…
The YWCA’s mission is to eliminate racism and empower women. The organization has been actively engaged in the BVSD schools for two decades now with their Reading to End Racism program to promote racial justice by reading aloud and having conversations to help eliminate racism and discrimination. The goal is to empower every student to promote peaceful relationships and support a nurturing environment in which every student can thrive.
The events are free, but spots are limited, and registration is required.
