Watch the difference it makes in children’s lives…it really can be as simple as that.

 
Dear Concerned Educators and Parents,

Everyone knows that bullying is at epidemic levels in the United States. What we don’t know is what we can do about it.

According to social scientists the common causes of bullying are rooted in diversity:
• Racial differences
• Differences in family formation/structure
• Perceived sexual orientation
• Learning disabilities
• Religious differences

And as the percentage of “different”children in schools and in society increases, the problem of bullying grows along with it. Yes, the world is changing and children will likely face biases–biases that could easily lead to bullying just because of how they look or how their families were formed. The fundamental way to “bully-bust” is to teach children to respect and celebrate all cultures, choices and “abilities”. Our kids are less likely to be bullied or tolerate bullying of any sort if they are exposed to diverse people as early as possible!

Our monthly newsletter (subscribe now) will help you eliminate bullying before it happens!
Each issue is packed with information on how to:
  • Teach children that different is just different, by the language we use, the environments we create and more.
  • Use “people-first” language.
  • Read your own personal biases and not pass them unconsciously to children.
  • Encourage your child’s confidence and inner strength. It’s proven that bullies don’t pick on kids who stand up for themselves.
  • Promote acceptance at home and in the classroom.
  • Create a multicultural environment in the classroom and community that empowers all children—without breaking the bank!
  • Select children’s books to reinforce cultural, racial and ethnic diversity.
  • Use fun and interesting cultural tidbits that can be the jumping off point for further discussion and exploration.
  • Leverage expert point of view—insights from authors, social workers, teachers, parents and even kids on what works.
  • Be on the “first alert” team for new products and tools that can help.

Decades of social science research has found that diverse classrooms and communities improve children’s experiences through more realistic representations of the world around them, increase opportunities for authentic civic engagement and increase social interaction between members of different racial, ethnic and cultural backgrounds. That’s a fancy way of saying that our kids are less likely to be bullied or tolerate bullying of any sort if they are exposed to diverse people as early as possible—without editorial from the adult “peanut gallery”.

Ask yourself if you are ready to:

  • Help children live in a world that is becoming increasingly diverse.
  • Help children field the questions that can hurt.
  • Help your children thrive in a sometimes-hostile world.
  • Eliminate bullying and bias–one child, one family, one school, one community at a time.

If you answered “yes” to any of the questions, then this simple newsletter can help you get started: click here for newsletter (subscribe now). “Impossible,” you say”. “This is a huge issue”. And you are right. The problem also gets bigger as kids get older. The opportunity to make a difference is when our children are young–before their biases are formed.

Let’s look at an example to illustrate this point.
For generations, picture books have increased children’s self-esteem, established great role models and ideas—all kinds of ideas!

Now, I know you must be wondering how a child's picture book can do all that? But books are a very powerful medium. Children learn from fairy tales, fables, storybooks and oral traditions—everything from ancient mythology to Dr. Seuss. Thus, little girls, like Cinderella, wait for their prince to come and make their lives wonderful. Boys want to go off and slay giants, much like Jack of Jack and the Beanstalk or larger-than-life heroes in Greek and Roman mythology. Books are a proven way to influence a child's worldview and ideas about their place within society. Books help children form concepts of right and wrong, as well as raise awareness of social issues.

This monthly newsletter (subscribe now) will provide book views and reviews–ones that specifically empower children to celebrate and respect culture, choices and abilities.

Books like these: Families are Forever, Dumplings are Delicious and Tooth Fairy Tales (click here for more information).

And that’s just the beginning!
