“If you are neutral in situations of injustice

You have chosen the side of the oppressor.”

~~  Desmond Tutu  ~~

There is so much unrest at the moment following the death of George Floyd.

Understandably there is anger and protests are appearing across the globe.

🎧

In this episode I give guidance to parents in how best to talk to their children about racism and how the deep-rooted bigotry within many of our societies has to change. There is no going back to the “status quo.”

🎧

As parents, we are our child’s first role model. We help them shape their values and their beliefs – we can therefore shape how we heal systemic and historic racism. The change starts with us parents.

🎧

What can we do as parents?

  1. Practice Self Care and Self Awareness
  2. Educate Yourselves – Understand White Privilege
  3. Have Age Appropriate Conversations
  4. Acknowledge Your Child’s Curiosity
  5. Mind Your Language – What to Say
  6. Validate Everyone’s Feelings
  7. Address Past Mistakes
  8. Nurture Respect
  9. Develop a Growth Mindset
  10. Be the Voice of Change
