How to Talk to Kids About Protests and Racism

As protests and riots continue in the wake of George Floyd’s death, it’s likely that children will be impacted in some way by these events. They may witness an emotional response from those around them, overhear a conversation, view something on social media, have it brought up by peers, or see the distress in the faces of those they love. Some children may ask their parents specific questions, initiating a conversation that many may dread, find uncomfortable, want to avoid, or simply not know how to explain a topic so utterly complex. However, these conversations are not to be avoided as not talking about upsetting events only fuels fear, anxiety and uncertainty. Having these conversations with a supportive adult, not only reduces fear, anxiety and uncertainty, but also begins a process of embracing differences and connecting through love, compassion and kindness. We’ve put together this guide to help with that difficult conversation. This guide was prepared by mental health professionals on our staff, but it is by no means the ultimate or only way to engage in this conversation with your child. It is simply one tool that we are offering as a place to start.
