Since diversity represents every piece of a person that makes that person unique, there are so many examples that you can point out to your kids. I often use school as an opportunity. There are teachers my kids don’t always gel with, or times that my kids pick a friend that I am not sure about. I use these opportunities to remind myself and them that people run pretty deep, and they will be better people in the long run if they are exposed to many different types of people. The world is a big place, and it gets smaller by the minute. I believe deeply that kids who are exposed to these differences will be best equipped to connect with people down the road. The benefits of that will be endless – in their jobs, in their personal lives, and in their view of the world.
