Kids Don’t Need Us To Sugarcoat Race Or Racism. Just Ask Sesame Street.

On the topic of speaking to your children about race or racism, Always Anjali sets a great example of explaining these topics to your children in a way that they would understand…

“Kids need simple, uncomplicated language that’s easy to grasp.

I particularly love books that do a good job of this, like Always Anjali, where Anjali experiences bullying because of her name. Author Sheetal Sheth shows not only Anjali’s struggle but how she gains the strength, after chatting with her parents, to stand up for herself and demand respect for her name.”
