Teaching Your Kids to Respect Children From Other Cultures

As our children go through life, they will meet lots of different people with different backgrounds. Some of those people will be old, some will be young; some will be educated and some won’t; some people will be Jewish and some will be Hindu or Christian. You get the gist! 

With this in mind, it’s important that we educate our children on these differences and teach them to respect others. This is particularly true when they start school and begin to meet children with various different cultural backgrounds. Here are some tips from an independent school in Andalucia.

Try to expose your child to different cultures and religions as early as possible. You could research various religious holidays and perhaps celebrate them in your own home, in your own way. Take your child to restaurants where they serve different types of cuisine and read books or watch films that explore the lives of people with different cultural backgrounds. Point out both the differences and the similarities between your own family and theirs and remind your child that everyone is equal, despite what they believe or what traditions they take part in.

It’s also important to always lead by example; you can’t expect your child to respect other cultures if you don’t. Embrace diversity around your child and refrain from make prejudiced judgements or stereotypical jokes. You might want to check what types of media your child is consuming and ensure they are not reinforcing discrimination.

Children are not born with an innate ability to respect everyone around them, this is something they are taught. However, they are born without any preconceived ideas about other people, which is something you should emphasise. If you require any more information or support on this matter, don’t be afraid to contact your child’s school.
