How to Teach Kids About Social Justice: Parents, Here's an Easy Place to Start by Ann Marie Patitucci
I often tell my kids that love is more powerful than hate and acceptance is more powerful than prejudice. But we all know that hate and prejudice exist.
One way that we can address this is to diversify our kids’ bookshelves. Doing so allows us to begin important conversations with our kids about open-mindedness, inclusion and social justice. As you select books for your children, keep these tips in mind:
- Make sure the story is engaging.
- Choose books with multi-dimensional characters different from the people in your own family.
- Choose non-fiction titles about historical figures who have fought for basic human rights.
- Create a safe, comfortable environment and encourage your child to comment and ask questions as you read together.
Here's a list of books about diversity to get you started!
