Children begin the development of racial attitudes at a very young age. Research shows that as early as six months, babies are beginning to sort out differences in skin color. Talking to Kids About Race empowers parents, childcare providers, and educators of young children with an understanding of racial attitudes in early childhood development and provides tools for creating change through a research-based, comprehensive workshops.
Talking to Kids About Race I: Internalized-Developing Healthy Identities
The workshop explores how positive and negative messages around race affect children’s identities. Participants are provided with an activity booklet to engage in conversations about race in order to promote the development of positive racial identities.
Talking to Kids About Race II: Interpersonal- Creating Cultural Inclusion
The workshop explores how children begin to create in-groups and out-groups and how these groups impact interactions. Participants are given tools and strategies to promote inclusion and create a mutual sense of belonging.
“Before this workshop, I didn’t know if we should use the colorblind approach or openly talk about our differences. Now I am equipped with ideas and tools on how to approach kids.”
“The tools alone are astoundingly helpful, but the information and materials provided makes an amazing complete package.”
