Continuing the conversation about racism

  • Acknowledge your child's emotions, as well as your own feelings about the tthe topic of racism. Feelings such as upset, sad, confused or angry is natural and ok.
     

  • If your child have questions, follow their lead and let their questions quide your conversation.
     

  • Remember, racism is a complex topic and it’s ok not to have all the answers. Sometimes saying ‘I don’t know’ is the most honest and helpful thing to say.
