Summary Translation: Seven Days Reporter - Since May, the global eruption of protests against police brutality and racial discrimination has cause many parents to face questions raised by their children about these topics. Experts said it is wrong for parents to neglect addressing these questions because they think their child is still too young to accept the truth. It is more common for people of colour to discuss race in their daily conversations. Due to the recent large-scale protests, many white parents are beginning to talk about race with their children. It is important to note that inaction does not mean neutrality. Inaction can be a way of supporting oppression. San Francisco pediatrician Rhea Boyd said starting conversations on anti-racism is a way to become a role model for their children. The author said it is common knowledge that it is hard to change biases after we become adults. It is always the parents who feel uncomfortable talking about these kinds of topics, but children will not have that sensitivity.
