Some tips on continuing the conversation about racism
Acknowledge your child's emotions, as well as your own feelings about the topic of racism. Feelings such as upset, sad, confused or angry are natural and okay.
If your child has questions, follow their lead and allow their questions to quide the conversation.
Remember, racism is a complex topic and it’s okay not to have all the answers. Sometimes saying ‘I don’t know’ is the most honest and helpful thing to say.
