Workshop Application: Anti-racist parenting leads to anti-racist kids
WORKSHOP BACKGROUND: Parenting is a mix of a parent’s childhood experiences and culturally informed values woven into daily practice. In this current political moment, we are all confronting our own actions (or inactions) as individuals. But as parents and homeschooling educators, we are also simultaneously searching for resources to communicate with our children without traumatizing them or perpetuating our own ignorance.
Through this cutting-edge parenting workshop, Jyoti Gupta draws on her critically and academically acclaimed activity book for children, Different Differenter, to empower parents as they learn how to facilitate independent thinking in their own children through play.
We will spend four weeks fearlessly unpacking our own biases as parents and learning how to nurture inclusive values in our families around these topics. In these foundational sessions, we will train as a group, while also partaking in multidisciplinary experiences such as watching media, storytelling, and engaging in craft-based activities.
This is a judgment-free zone!
Each session includes an intimate discussion period where parents are encouraged to ask questions and express their feelings towards each topic. This is a time we’ll use to facilitate our own understanding of these issues and educate ourselves to grow through the process.
