I Love Me! Positive Self-Identity in Young BIPOC Children
One of the questions we most often hear at EmbraceRace is how can we - as parents, family members, and educators - best support the development of positive self-identity in young Black and Indigenous children and all children of color? What everyday actions can we take, what routine conversations can we have, to help BIPOC children learn to love all parts of themselves and engage the world as brave, strong, and resilient people confident in their racial identities?
We're delighted to be joined by pediatric psychologist Sadiqa Cash (a "Scholar, Connector, and Doer for Black Lives") and by former state Head Start administrator and "Head Start dad" Jonathan Gonzales for their well-informed takes on these questions. As always, we take your questions and comments.
