We Weren't Yet Comfortable Talking With Our Kids...Until (post)

“Something we really value and want to focus on as parents is helping our kids understand other people and walk a mile in their shoes.

In our first few weeks as a We Stories family, we realized that we were becoming more and more comfortable talking about differences, describing and noticing them, but when it came to talking about how people are treated differently because of race, we were way less comfortable in finding the words for a really young child. That changed as we built a practice of using our We Stories children’s books as a jumping off point for age-appropriate conversations.

We Stories has given us just a different lens on how we approach what we are putting in front of our kids and that's guided us in other areas. We now feel more comfortable acknowledging our privilege and can use it to be part of the solution.”
