Conversations with kids about race and racism with children aren’t easy. They can be uncomfortable and clumsy. Too often, parents don’t fully understand the issues themselves, so they struggle to talk about it with their kids. In this special episode, Care.com CEO Tim Allen is joined by the Rev. Dr. Jennifer Harvey. She’s an award-winning educator, a racial justice activist, and the author of the the New York Times best-selling book, Raising White Kids: Bringing up Children in a Racially Unjust America. Dr. Harvey offers guidance on how to have constructive, age-appropriate discussions with children about race and racism. Whether you’re a parent who wants to advance your family’s anti-racism activism, or an educator or caregiver looking to foster racial justice in our homes, schools, and communities, you’ll leave this episode with the knowledge and tools you need to educate kids to be informed, empathetic, and active allies in the ongoing fight against systemic racism in America.
