How to Teach Racial Tolerance to Young Children

Be a good example for children. This is the most important step, the one that will speak louder than anything you might say to them.
Expose children to diverse races and cultures at an early age.
Teach your children the meaning of equality. Tell them at although we are all different colors, nationalities, etc., we are all human beings who deserve the same amount of respect and kindness.
Be open about the concept of prejudice. Pretending it does not exist is impractical. Prejudice holds less power when children have knowledge of it’s negativity.
Be a good listener. Children are naturally curious and will undoubtedly have questions about people who are different from them. Be ready with positive and realistic answers to give them better understanding of the world around them.
