We've all heard the expression "tell it to me like I'm a five-year-old, some of us may have even used it at some point. However, we normally use it to refer to a simpler way of explaining science or technical matters. We teach our children math, science, biology, astronomy, and countless other subjects but we as parents, and our educational system as a whole, most of the times miss out on social matters.
Maybe it just doesn't cross our minds to explain social issues to children, but the truth is that it is an integral part of the world we live in. So, the sooner they understand such complex matters, the better. It will also eventually prepare them better for developing their own social skills.
In "The Germ: How to Talk to Kids about Racism", Deidra Sorrell provides us with a wonderful guide to help us explain such issues to our children, striving to make them understand that we are all equal and that we can get along.
This book is definitely a must-have for any parent.
