Parental Support With Topical Events
As parents we often question how we can support our children to understand events that happen and our shared through news and social media. We can worry about how to introduce topics to children and how to answer many of the questions that children raise.
It is really important that our children know that they can talk to adults whether parents or teachers and they will be heard.
We wanted to share resources with you that can help with these conversations.
Black Lives Matter
Peaceful protests, mass marches, and portrayals of violence. Petitions, political speeches, and demonstrations. Recently we have seen movements advocating for an end to racial inequality on a mass scale. Yet, current affairs aren’t always tangible or immediately clear, especially from a child’s perspective. It is our responsibility to engage in positive and open discussions about race and racism with our children at home and in school.
