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.
