Have you read any of these books with your children?
I want to add, I think now, more than ever, we need to be honest with our kids about our difference, while filling them up with kindness and love for everyone. River sees differences between herself and her friends, and these obvious, normally physical dissimilarities, make her love them even more intensely. She still has childlike joy and innocence in her heart, but she is carrying this with a more mature confidence.
I want to always be the one who teaches my children the tough things about life. It's our duty as parents, and is the highest honor, to raise capable, smart, joyful, accepting, and loving humans. None of that comes from silence. When we talk about hard things, they get it. They always will.
