How early is too early to talk about race? This is a common question parents ask.
As a bi-racial Black mother I found it challenging to talk to my two sons about race. I knew that I’d eventually have to talk with them but didn’t imagine that I’d need to talk with them when they were young, preschoolers. There were no resources on how to have this conversation with my children.
As a mom and pediatrician, I know that racism impacts children and that parents are looking for ways to have conversations about race but struggle with what to say and when to start.
Talking About Race with Young Children is the course designed to help you learn when and how to talk about race with your children. In the course, I’ll share my experiences, knowledge and provide resources to help you navigate this important conversation.
