In issue 12, we introduce kids to voting and why it’s important. The upcoming presidential election is a great opportunity for kids to learn even more about the power of voting! For pointers, we invited Kevin S. Ruegg, PhD., CEO and Executive Director of Kids Voting USA for this special guest post. Kids Voting USA is an awesome nonprofit that gets kids excited about voting through fun, educational activities. Read on for excellent tips!
In issue 10, we talk about Maya’s experience with abuse. We felt it was important to dedicate a page to understanding abuse and how to get help. To share more resources on this sensitive topic with parents and caretakers, we’ve consulted a professional to share tips on how to appropriately open the dialogue on consent and boundaries.
Civil rights, racial injustice, and the importance of diversity—these are all topics that may not come up naturally when we talk to our kids. So we’ve gathered go-to resources and ways to help you start the conversation! While our kids may not understand the complexity of these issues just yet, we can certainly start laying the groundwork for them today.
