Raising tolerance

If you are neutral in situations of injustice you have chosen the side of the oppressor

Desmond Tutu

You want to talk to your kids about racism and prejudices and don’t know where to start? Books are always a great way to work hard topics for young children, added to all the amazing benefits that reading brings to them.
After the lasts sad and unfair news, I have been thinking how could I help or which should my behave be, here and on social media. We need to talk about those acts of violence, and raise tolerant children. That’s why I am going to share a list of 10 best sellers:
“Books that will help you to raise tolerant and prejudice-free child”

And I link below some helpful articles with similar content, hope it will be useful.

Also a really important thing to do is educate your children’s self-development. Joanne Zammit has written an amazing book about how to develop social skills, emotional intelligence and confidence. Check her “Happy book” (also for adults).

Babies aren’t born bad or racist. These are learnt behaviours. If we start with our kids and built our generation to recognise their own gifts and that we all have beautiful gifts to share. Life isn’t a competition, we are all on out own journey.
