Parents can (and should) teach DEI morals at home
To help equip your grade-schooler with the diversity and inclusion life skills needed for a successful future, we created a collection of DEI parenting booklets. Each booklet focuses on a specific DEI moral topic (e.g., immigration, disability, poverty, etc.) that can be easily incorporated into social studies homeschool conversations and household routines.
Why focus on parents?
At the end of the day, it's parents who need answers to the inevitable questions their kids ask. And it's parents who will be having follow-up conversations, deciphering mixed messages, responding to homeschool curricula, adjusting household routines, and ultimately, steering the moral compass of the next generation.
DEI moral education
Our intent is not to indoctrinate children to complicated topics they're not ready for. Instead, we're focused on offering practical guidance to parents for simply, honestly, and at an appropriate age-level, providing moral responses to children's curiosity about contemporary cultural issues.
The best part?
Rather than general advice like 'be a good role model' or 'talk about feelings,' our booklets provide step-by-step instructions and practical examples for subtly weaving DEI morals into homeschool conversations and household routines.
Our #1 priority is to make it as easy as possible for parents to raise accepting, respectful humans.
What our customers are saying
Thank you for writing this!
I was so happy to find this book and series. My most favorite part is the answers/scripts the book gives, almost like a script for lost parents of what to say when their child asks questions about DEI issues. I'm so relieved to have this book in hand and I thank you very much for writing it for us.
Ideas and resources galore
This is a great guide for fathers of girls who seek to find ways to leverage close family relationships to explore gender themes together, so that educational conversations can happen. The guides and resources are wonderful, and the author's style is informative without being pushy. I loved it.
Finally! A diversity book for parents!
I've read so many children's books about diversity to my kids lately. I'm stumped every time they ask a question. The books in this series are the perfect companion books. I'm so pleased!
Empowering Parents to Raise Compassionate and Inclusive Kids
"How to Respond to Disability Curiosity from Kids" is a groundbreaking guide that empowers parents to raise compassionate and inclusive children. This insightful book offers practical advice on how to address disability-related questions from kids, fostering understanding and empathy. This is a must-read for anyone looking to raise socially aware and empathetic children in today's diverse society.
I highly recommend the whole series!
Kindness toward immigrants is so important. We were all strangers here unless we were Native American Indians. I like how Trish Allison says how important it is to praise a child who is responding well to learning by looking them in the eye and encouraging them. The author writes excellent social justice books for good parenting.
Empowering, no nonsense guide
Trish Allison has distilled this topic to its most informative and empathic essence. It is comprehensive yet brief. The writing is succinct and extremely well-organized. She did a fantastic job here. Strongly recommended! Clearly a labor of love. I suspect her whole series of books reaches the same level of excellence.
Wonderful book from a wonderful series
This guidebook is an excellent resource for parents who want their kids to learn the importance of treating immigrants with kindness and respect. The author uses expert-backed input from specialists in child development, education policy, immigration practice, to show how children can better understand a controversial concept such as 'immigration.'
