Caregivers may be hesitant to talk with their young children about race, and understandably so. Racial identity and racial justice are complex and sensitive topics. Yet, these conversations are critical because they:
- Help young children develop a strong sense of individuality and group identity
- May help young children understand racially oriented situations they’re exposed to, in-person and on the news
