Week 2 – Talking to My Children about Culture and Race: Tips for Successful conversations.
Our children are our tomorrow. Children lean on parents, guardians, teachers, mentors and coaches to guide them in their lives. The conversations we have around culture and race are important for all children. Join us in WEEK 2 of the WWS Parent Series as we learn how to support parents and encourage honest, age-appropriate, conversations. It challenges us to ask questions, reminds us to listen, and encourages tough conversations.
