Talking about racial and lifestyle differences can be hard and uncomfortable. Yet it’s our job to raise the next generation to respect and learn from people who look or believe differently than we do. Carolyn Helsel and Y. Joy Harris-Smith offer practical ways to build compassion and empathy in our children.

  1. We have to practice restraint when answering questions from kids.
  2. Our kids watch everything we say and do.
  3. Food can be a great entry point to experiencing different cultures.

Carolyn and Joy are authors, mothers, teachers, and preachers. Carolyn is white and Joy is black, and they each bring different experiences to parenting.
