Let's face it, no one wants to have to tell their child that there are nasty people in the world who will try to hurt them just for being themselves. One of the best ways we can help prepare our children to cope with discrimination and intolerance is by being open about it. When we show our children that these topics, though tough, are not taboo, we let them know that they can always come to us with questions or thoughts about life's scary situations.

Part of growing up and getting older will mean that our kids come face to face with some of the ugliness of the world. Given recent events, we already may be having these conversations sooner than we'd like. PJ Library has compiled resources that parents may find helpful to use as a starting point in discussions with their children. Come join in an interactive session with other parents, grandparents, and educators to strengthen our collective approach to talking about anti-Semitism with our children.
