About This Course

By the time children are ten years of age, their perceptions of race and racism have been formed. Too, by this age, your child has already experienced some form of discrimination at least as a bystander.

As they become older, these perceptions may be reinforced. Not talking about race and racism early causes the children to fill in the gaps coming to harmful and problematic inaccurate conclusions. As youth have become more actively involved with race injustices and other social issues today, you want to be able to applaud their choices.

Your Child and Racism assists you when having this sensitive conversation and throughout times when guidance is needed.
