Do a Self-Checkup

Before you can teach tolerance, you have to do an honest self-checkup and reflect on any prejudices you may have. Look behind that occasional racist joke that slips out, or those stereotypical associations that come to mind when you think of a certain group of people. Chances are, you'll find a few biases that could use a reality check. Once you've resolved these, you'll be in a position to help your child develop her own sense of equality and empathy.
