The children, parents and practitioners underline the importance of implementing inclusion and avoiding exclusion.
Practitioners, students, lecturers and trainers can:
Watch and enjoy children in various settings actively exploring similarities and differences and unlearning any discriminatory messages they may have absorbed.
See practitioners boosting children’s self-esteem, pride in their own cultural and family backgrounds while respecting and valuing those of the rest of the group.
See a teacher using a Persona Doll and watch the children reading, talking, thinking and making up their own minds about a racist letter the Doll finds in his bag .
Empathise with a parent talking about her feelings on leaving her child for the first time and with another’s fear of being judged a ‘bad’ mother.
