Biases and prejudice don’t just develop as people become adults. They begin when children are young, slowly growing, and exposed to prejudice in their classrooms, after-school activities, and, yes, even in their homes, no matter how enlightened their parents may consider themselves to be. The only way to have a more just and equitable world—not to mention more broad-minded, empathetic children—is for parents to closely examine biases beginning in childhood and how they infiltrate our kids’ lives.
Unraveling Bias uncovers what scientists have learned about how children are impacted by race, gender, immigration, and LGBTQ biases, and how we adults can help protect them from those biases. Part science, part history, part current events, and part call to arms, Unraveling Bias provides readers with the answers to vital questions.
