Talking to Kids About Race, Racism

An FCCPS Workshop for Parents on Racism
Posted on 03/13/2019

Research shows that children from a very young age are aware of race. Parents play a critical role in shaping children’s perceptions about race and culture. However, many parents aren’t sure how to talk with their kids about race and racism or how to provide age-appropriate answers to questions about race – and worry that they aren’t providing the “right” answers. As a result, families sometimes avoid the topic, which may leave children feeling that the topic of race is taboo or too difficult to talk about.
