Beyond the Golden Rule: A Parent's Guide to Preventing and Responding to Prejudice
Williams, Dana
Southern Poverty Law Center (NJ1)
Whether one is a parent of a 3-year-old who is curious about why a friend's skin is brown, the parent of a 9-year-old who has been called a slur because of his religion, or the parent of a 15-year-old who snubs those outside of her social clique at school, this book is designed to help teach children to honor the differences in themselves and in others--and to reject prejudice and intolerance. Three age-specific sections feature everyday parents sharing personal stories about the challenges and rewards of raising children in today's diverse world. Psychologists, educators and parenting experts offer practical, age-appropriate advice to help integrate lessons of respect and tolerance in day-to-day activities. And a final section offers guidance for reflecting upon one's own biases, and how those biases affect one's parenting.
