Yesterday at the beach I over heard a group of kids around the ages 6-10 discussing whether they like black or white people more. "You don't like black people? That means your racist." Another kid argues, "no it's white people who are the bad people". With all the horrible incidents occurring in our nation we must remember to protect our children but also teach our children about equality and right from wrong. Unfortunately, children must learn that not everyone believes in equality, that minorities are in fact looked at and treated "different" in the eyes of many and that the leader of our country "sees both sides" to racism. Sharing love, helping others and defeating racism starts at home.. educate your children instead of leaving it up to the internet to fill them in. Remember, a child's brain development starts with relationships and experiences..communicating can make the difference in a child's understanding of all this chaos.
