Abstract:

"Violence by children against children is on the rise. One sure way parents can help combat this trend is by showing their children how to work with those around them. Parents' recognition of the equality of others is fundamental to that process - when we both recognize and respect differences in class, religion, sexual orientation, or race, then we can teach this ideal of equality to our children." "Teaching Tolerance shows that no one is truly exempt from the habit of judging others. As children, in order to make sense of the world, we were taught to label and categorize events and people around us. Sara Bullard discusses the importance of recognizing and, in some cases, reversing that process. Bullard shows parents how, once they are aware of the attitudes they were raised with, it is easier for them to teach their children true tolerance toward others. Throughout the book, readers find encouragement for private journal writing that will help them clarify their own history of tolerance and intolerance, as well as suggestions for activities that can be undertaken as a family. The latter half of the book discusses children's particular needs for security and self-expression, which, if respectfully met by their parents, will free them to be comfortable both with themselves and with people of different backgrounds."--Jacket.
