Tips For Teaching Kids About Inclusion and Equality

Tips For Teaching Kids About Inclusion and Equality - The California Beach Co.

It’s never too early to start the discussion about equality and inclusion at home. It is so important to teach kids from a young age that all humans deserve the same level of respect and opportunities, regardless of physical appearance or social status. Raising kind, accepting children is one of the best ways that you can help contribute to a more positive future for our society as a whole. Here are a couple of ways to bring up the discussion about inclusivity at home. 🌈✨

Explain inclusivity to your kids 

Simply bringing up the topic of inclusivity to your children is a great way to get a discussion started. You could start by asking them if they’ve ever heard the term or if they know what it means. Explain to them what inclusivity means to you and some ways that they can practice it. One great way to encourage kids to practice inclusivity is by sharing with them the importance of never leaving out any of the other kids at school when participating in group activities such as team sports. 👫👭👬

Challenge your kids to go out of their comfort zone

Encouraging your kids to play with anyone who may be left out at school will help them understand that everyone is equal. Challenge them to play with anyone at school who may seem “left out” or “different” because of disabilities or language barriers. 🤝

Lead by example

One of the best ways to teach your kids about equality and inclusion is leading by example. We all know that our kids copy us pretty much from when they are born, so by being inclusive and kind yourself, you’re already taking positive steps as a parent and leading the way to your child understanding equality. 🥰

Teach compassion

Teach your kids the importance of practicing love and kindness. Explain to them that it is important to always choose kindness when interacting with others. Try to help them imagine life from the perspective of someone else and tell them to try “putting themselves in someone else's shoes." Emphasize the importance of the golden rule by treating others how they would like to be treated. 👩‍🏫
