Discussing stereotypes with your child?
Find a Conversation

Sean has a mixed heritage which includes American Indian and African American ancestry- he's seen the people stare when we go out sometimes. So this isn't the first time we've talked about this issue and I'm sure it won't be the last but it got me to thinking - we have a reason to discuss this because it's impacted our family and will continue to do so but is this type of conversation happening in other families where the issues aren't so close to home? If so, what is the best way to approach it? Goodness knows I need all the help I can get ;-).
