This is the final installment of this series. Even if you have a teen at home or a young adult who is no longer at home, check out some of the previous blogs on this topic as well. Even some of the suggestions in the babies section will be applicable to you and your child. You should check the toddlers/preschoolers and school-aged kids posts as well. And if you are still not sure why it is important to talk about this stuff, find out why here and here. Leave a comment and let me know what you thought of the series. Enjoy!
I included young adult in here because once your kids are adults, they will encounter a whole other set of issues regarding race that they may have been shielded from when they were living at home. Don't stop the conversation when your kids leave the house! The brain continues to develop until a child is about 26 so even in their early 20s, they are still trying to make sense of the world. So keep it going well into adulthood.
