Combatting Racism (USCCB)
Talking to Children about Racism
Parents, teach children how special they really are!
God made every single one of us. This makes us incredibly special. It doesn’t matter who we are, who our friends are, what we own, or what we look like. What matters is that we are special because we are God’s creations. This means, also, that we must treat others with great respect and fairness because God made them too. (www.anneneuberger.com)
Speak to your child about bullying, tolerance, and befriending those with special needs. Don’t forget, the best tool you have is yourself! The greatest way to teach your child about respecting the life and human dignity of every person is to model it for them! Use these tools as great conversation starters!
