My little girl just started day care full time so she's been hanging around lots of other kids for the first time. Last night, she was talking to me about the other kids at school. She started saying "that little black girl" and I said "what's her name?" She said the name of one of the kids and she's not even a "black" girl. She's a white kid. I know nobody in my family has ever described other people to her as black and white. I don't want her to see a color difference in people! How can I explain to a 3 year old that color is not a way to identify people?

you can't explain something to her that's impossible. she is not blind and there is no reason for her not to make an observation. there are black people, white people, brown people and yellow people. who cares.

^agreed^ how the heck do you expect her to not see color difference in people. that's just stupid. unless she is not wanting ti play with a child because of the color of their skin then who cares?
