THINGS TO RE­MEM­BER

True Love - - PARENTING -

1. Al­ways check your bias and prej­u­dice; don’t pass them on to your child.

2. Never use ab­so­lute lan­guage and ex­am­ples.

3. Don’t dele­git­imise the con­ver­sa­tion by say­ing things like “we don’t see colour”.

4. Do not shame your child if they come to you with a state­ment you think is prob­lem­atic. Al­ways en­gage, teach and em­power.

5. Be gen­tle and pa­tient dur­ing these con­ver­sa­tions.
