“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
