Northshore Council PTSA & Kokanee Elementary PTA, in partnership with PTAs from Kenmore, Canyon Creek, Fernwood, Ruby Bridges, and Woodin PRESENTS:
Folk wisdom tells us young children don't notice differences or have any biases, yet research is telling us otherwise. What are age appropriate ways to develop intentionally inclusive and identity conscious children?
This session will give parents of children in elementary to middle school a developmental timeline for when kids notice difference, absorb biases, and believe stereotypes (much earlier than most adults think). Parents will learn age appropriate conversational tools and advice for:
- modeling behaviors for kids
- coaching them for reacting to difference
- choosing/using media mindfully
- exploring identity and cultural competency
Join us in learning how we can, in age appropriate ways, instill positive self identity in our children and coach them to be positive influences on others' identities. Together, we can co-create inclusive communities that work toward success for all.
Spanish and Hindi interpreters will be available during the presentation.
A recording will be provided after the event.
