Talking About Race with Young Children


Talking to Children About Race 1200x900

Our partners at Vroom have developed a guide to help you have conversations with young children on topics like racism, discrimination and stereotyping.

An important part of early brain development is learning who we are and our place in the world. Caring adults in a child’s life help shape how a child sees their self and others. This is especially true with complex ideas like race and ethnicity. We call this "identity development."

Their new Vroom Guide is a deep dive into the science of identity development. Interested in emerging brain science research from leading researchers? This is for you! The guide focuses on positive ways to talk to your child about tough topics. Topics like racism, stereotyping and discrimination. These are important chats for every family and great opportunities for brain-building!
