Teaching your children about race is essential. Learn why with Leon Hady, Guide Education Founder.

Former headteacher Leon Hady has trained over 8,000 teachers through Guide Education, which is about to launch a freeparentingcourse on how to address race issues with your children. “It can feel like a minefield for parents who often struggle to know what to say that’s age appropriate,” said the father-of-three.

He warned that telling very young kids too much about the horrors of racism can be traumatic. “Children don’t possess the critical thinking to really understand that what they see on a TV screen is happening in a far away country. Kids are told to trust the police, so to be told about police brutality can be frightening. Experts blame over-exposure to stuff on the internet on increasing anxiety in children.”
