All books in the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Parent Guidebooks series are written for parents (and caregivers) of elementary school kids. This guidebook focuses on the value of older people by providing instructions for parents to teach kids how to connect with them successfully. Whether it's a grandparent, a neighbor, or a family friend, all children can benefit from a positive relationship with an older person. 

This guidebook provides concise instructions and practical ideas for:

  • Subtly learning what your child already knows about older people
  • Explaining the basics of the aging process
  • Encouraging a relationship with an older person
  • Suggesting the right questions for kids to ask older people¬†
  • Cultivating respect for older people at home
Please note: Instead of general advice like 'be a good role model' or 'talk about feelings,' our guidebooks provide specific, age-appropriate examples and step-by-step instructions for integrating diversity and inclusion values into daily life at home.
