#18 How to Talk to Your Kids About Race

On episode 18 of My American Meltingpot, we’re talking about how and when to talk to our children about race. Let's be clear, we're not going to give you a color-by-numbers script on how to talk to your children about race because, first of all, we don’t know your children. We don’t know what race you or your children are. We don’t know how old your children are. We don’t know if your children already have their own ideas about race, and we certainly don’t know what your ideas are about race. And all of those factors matter when we strike up a conversation about race with our children. 

On this episode, we discuss how to talk to our kids, when to talk our kids and most importantly, what the heck we should actually be sharing when it comes to race. Spoiler alert: This isn't a one-and-done conversation. 

Joining me for this important discussion are three amazing women who are all really smart, really accomplished and are all mothers and educators. They also each represent different racial and ethnic backgrounds. They are, Lisa Nelson-Haynes, Eileen Flanagan and Homa Sabet Tavangar. If you are an educator or you have children, you don't want to miss this episode.
