All books in the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Parent Guidebooks series are written for parents (and caregivers) of elementary school kids. This particular 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 step-by-step 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: New children's books and (many) school curriculums about diversity and inclusion are appearing daily, which is fantastic news! But there's a gap that needs filling. To help kids really absorb the values they're learning, parents (and caregivers) need practical ideas and instructions for incorporating those values into daily life at home.
