A PRIMER FOR PARENTS EDUCATING OUR CHILDREN FOR GOOD HUMAN RELATIONS.
GOODMAN, MARY ELLEN
PARENTS SHOULD TEACH THEIR CHILDREN GOOD HUMAN RELATIONS AND SHOULD DEVELOP IN THEM A PHILOSOPHY AND KNOWLEDGE OF HOW TO DEAL WITH PEOPLE. THEY SHOULD NOT TOLERATE EVEN PASSIVE CONFORMITY TO CUSTOMARY PREJUDICES AND PREJUDICED ACTION. IN THEIR DAILY LIVES, PARENTS SHOULD REALIZE THAT EVERYTHING THEY SAY AND DO AFFECTS THEIR CHILDREN. EVEN WHAT THEY DO NOT SAY OR DO CAN INFLUENCE THEIR CHILDREN. THUS PARENTS SHOULD TEACH THEIR CHILDREN ABOUT RACE AND CULTURE AND ABOUT RACIAL AND CULTURAL DIFFERENCES, THEY SHOULD ALSO TEACH THAT AN INDIVIDUAL IS JUDGED BY HIS CHARACTERISTICS AND NOT BY HIS RACE, RELIGION, OR NATIONALITY. SOME OF THE PRACTICAL MEANS FOR TEACHING HEALTHY ATTITUDES TO CHILDREN ARE ACTING UNPREJUDICED, BEING ALERT TO ANY SIGN THAT A CHILD IS DEVELOPING PREJUDICES, AND COMMUNICATING THE IDEA THAT PREJUDICE IS WRONG. PARENTS SHOULD DEVELOP IN THEIR CHILDREN AN APPRECIATION FOR VARIETY IN RACE AND CULTURE, THEY SHOULD EXTEND FRIENDSHIP TO ANYONE REGARDLESS OF RACE, CREED, OR NATIONALITY, THEY SHOULD FOSTER HUMAN RELATIONS EDUCATION IN THE SCHOOLS, AND THEY SHOULD USE EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO ENCOURAGE AND HELP ORGANIZATIONS WORKING FOR BETTER HUMAN RELATIONS.
