Talk About Different People
When it comes to teaching kids about systemic oppression, one of the most difficult things for white kids, according to Dr. Nurenberg, is realising that racism isn't a distant phenomenon. Dr. Nurenberg says that this perception tends to develop because so many non-BIPOC families live in segregated or predominantly white communities with a lack of diversity.
If this is the case, it's crucial for parents to expose their children to various cultures, people, and experiences in another way. Principal Killins recommends age-appropriate books like Something Happened in Our Town, which deals with the topic of police brutality and racial injustice, but you can also look here for 23 other antiracist books to read with your kids.
