I thought this Newsweek article was interesting, and certainly hits a topic I think about a lot. As both the father of a young son and the pastor of a church that aspires to raise kids up as future reconcilers, this topic is an important one.
I don’t think the advice given here is exhaustive, and it may not even be something all parents agree with. But it is a good starting point for discussion.
The conclusion of her article gives these three keys:
1. Knowledge: It’s important to give kids factual information…
2. Honesty: Kids understand when things aren’t fair. According to them, they are victims of unfairness nearly everyday. So tell them what discrimination really is, don’t sugarcoat it.
