It’s Asian American Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander Heritage Month all month long, and we are delighted to share with you this guest post from indigrow, MCBD’s May Sponsor of the Month.
“My kid is too young, I don’t need to think we need to talk about cultural identity so soon, right?”
Parents of young kids often feel conversations involving seemingly heavy topics like how we look, what we wear, what we eat, what we sound like, and how we are named, are conversations that don’t need to be addressed until much later. But science tells us that kids notice differences as early as 6 months of age. More importantly, the reality is that kids get called out for these obvious differences as early as their preschool and kindergarten years.
