Some parents have the mistaken idea that their young children are “color-blind” but research shows that this is not the case. The Life Kit for Parents podcast states, “Kids are not color-blind so we cannot be color silent.” When we choose not to teach our young children about race the world teaches them for us, and surely that is not what we want. If we leave it to society our children will harbor prejudices that can be detrimental to our community.  In this episode we will unpack three strategies that you can use to talk to your young children about race.
